Asafa Powell set to make Rome return

9 July 2007

Jamaica’s 100-metre World record holder Asafa Powell has been given the green light by his medical staff to compete at Friday’s Golden Gala meeting in Rome.

Powell, who sustained a groin injury while winning the Jamaica Championships, last month, was forced to sit-out the Golden League meeting in Paris last weekend with the injury, which automatically ruled him out of the running for the $1 Million Dollar prize jackpot..

He was a major doubt for the Rome meeting as well, but according to reports, the sprinter has recovered from his injury and all set to continue with his season.

“I suppose he won’t be in form to set a new record after his injury, but we’re happy to have him,” said the meeting director Luigi D’Onofrio.

The Commonwealth Games champion, who has a seasonal best of 9.94 seconds, has the world record of 9.77secs and he is hoping to find back the 2006 season where he ran undefeated on his way to running a record of sub-10 seconds over the dash for one season.
