Blogger Asked: What Is Going On With Asafa Powell?

I went to the Penn Relays to see Asafa Powell run against Usain Bolt, the show down was the big motivator for me to go on a four hour road trip to PA from NJ.

After seen the crowd going wild for Bolt as if I was in a Room type coliseum watching Spartacus killing some want to be gladiators, the atmosphere was very fiery as if nothing matters but the moment.

One thing was clear and that was the absent of Powell, everyone was warming up for their events and I couldn’t put my eyes on Asafa Powell. No where to be seen.

Question time
Something strange is going on here…what is the real reason?

Why Powell didn’t take part at Penn’s Relays?
Is it the toe injury?
Is it disagreement between Powell and Nike?

Usain Bolt: We Came Here Ready To Lay Down A Mark

By Gary Smith

2010 Penn Relays

Usain Bolt says his Racers Track Club – who ran as Jamaica Gold – well came prepared to win at the Penn Relays.

The sprint sensation said he and his team-mates were well focused on  winning at the Franklin Field Stadium on Saturday and they did just that – proving that the Glen Mills coached club is stepping up.

“We came here really focused and ready (to) executed,” the lanky sprinter said.

Bolt also admits that they have put in a two week specialty just for the carnival.

He said: “We even marked out just like the Penn Relays on our track, so he (his coach) was really into it.

“It’s a very good stepping stone to show that our track club is stepping up and doing well,” he said.

“Especially on this 4×100, we’ve been doing baton changes for two weeks.”

The team of Mario Forsythe, Yohan Blake, Marvin Anderson and Bolt clocked 37.90secs to set a new Penn Relays time for the event.

Bolt, who set world record to win the sprint double in Berlin last summer, powered to a blistering 8.79seconds anchor leg after getting the baton slightly behind.
