"X-Man" Carter versus Asafa Powell

13 July 2006

New sprint sensation Xavier "X-Man" Carter is confirmed for DN Galan, Tuesday July 25 at Stockholm Olympic Stadium. Carter who was the surprise winner in Lausanne in the 200 metres with 19.63 will go against world record holder Asafa Powell, Jamaica in the 100 metres.

- We have had our eyes on Xavier for several years thanks to his success at college and when he turned pro recently we wasted no time to invite him to DN Galan, says meeting director Rajne Söderberg. Carter's time, 19.63, is the second best behind Michael Johnson's 19.32 from the Olympic final in Atlanta 1996.

This year Xavier has set personal bests with 10.09 in the 100 metres, 19.63 in the 200 metres and 44.53 in the 400 metres.

- He is an incredible talent and it will be interesting to see which distance will be his best, says Rajne Söderberg. After his fantastic race in the 200 metres one must believe that he is capable of running faster in the 100 metres.

Xavier Carter, 20, entered the history books this year by winning four events at the NCAA Championships. Last time this feat was achieved was in 1936 by legendary Jesse Owens.
