Powell tells Greene to rethink his record plan

23 February 2007

Jamaican sprinter Asafa Powell told US star Maurice Greene to rethink his idea of a run at the 100m world record, declaring he will be the one to lower the mark he shares with Justin Gatlin.

Greene, the 32-year-old former Olympic and world 100m champion who once owned the world record of 9.79 seconds, said this will be one of his best years and his aims are the 2007 world and 2008 Olympic titles.

The American also is eying the world record of 9.77 seconds Powell shares with Justin Gatlin, the US sprinter who has appealed doping sanctions to a US arbitration panel

"I don't know what he is thinking," Powell told AFP. "I'm here. I'm running and I am going to break my own record. So if he is going for it, good luck."
