Injured Powell out of Paris

4 July 2007

Jamaican world record holder Asafa Powell has withdrawn from IAAF Paris Golden League on Friday, to give himself sufficient time to recover for the World Championships in Osaka, next month.

Powell picked up a groin injury while competing at the Jamaica Championships in Kingston, last month and with golden intentions for Osaka on his mind he has opted to skip the meeting to continue receiving treatment has the injury heals.

This now means that the Commonwealth Games gold medallist will not repeat his Golden League feat from last year, when he earned a share of the IAAF $1 million dollar jackpot.

The Jamaican could also sit out the Rome meeting also, scheduled for 13 July if his injury does not improves.

Powell shares the world record of 9.77 seconds with American Justin Gatlin, who has since been suspended by the IAAF.
