Injured Powell pulls out of Penn Relays

25 April 2008

Despite rumors suggesting that Asafa Powell, the world record-holder at 100 meters was ready to compete this weekend, it was announced that the Jamaican pulled out of the Penn Relays on Friday with an injured chest muscle.

The Jamaican sprinter was to participate in the "USA vs. the World" competition on Saturday.

Powell also withdrew from the Mt. SAC meet in California last weekend.

"He should be ready," his manager Paul Doyle said, "but it is one of those things — you do not want to push him back too early because you could be right back to square one."

"We expect a full recovery shortly, but he has a very limited range of motion (now),"

Powell holds the 100 world record of 9.74 seconds set last year.
