Asafa Powell, world-record holder in the 100-meter sprint, will face 400-meter Olympic and world champion Jeremy Wariner, and 2006 Olympic 200-meter winner Shawn Crawford, in the 200-meter sprint at the Prefontaine Classic on June 10 in Eugene.

Elite sprinters Xavier Carter, Wallace Spearmon, Kelly Willie, Rodney Martin and Chris Williams complete the field. Athletes must be ranked in the top 50 in the world to compete in a Prefontaine event.

"There may have been other 200 fields with more talent," meet director Tom Jordan said, in a media release Wednesday, "but . . . the tickets to those meets had 'Olympic Games Final' written on them."
