Powell turned down big offer to race against Gay in London

25 July 2007

Saving himself from a possible injury before the World Championships, world record holder Asafa Powell and his agent turned turn a big money offer to race against Tyson Gay in London.

According to the managing director of Fast Track, Jon Ridgeon, Powell’s agent Paul Doyle believes racing against Gay at the London meet would not be a good idea.

“We made a very competitive offer to Asafa Powell but his agent, Paul Doyle, has taken a view that he does not want to face Gay over 100m in London before Osaka,” Ridgeon was quoted as saying.

It was believed that the two speedsters would test their abilities at the Crystal Palace Grand Prix next month to gain some significant advantage before the world championships in Osaka, Japan.

However, with Powell still being cautious about recovering from a groin injury sustained at the Jamaica championships last month, he decided to play it smart.
