Asafa Powell seeks fast time in Rabat

Asafa Powell will look to make the best of a relatively weak field at Sunday’s Meeting International Mohammed VI – IAAF World Challenge Meeting – in Rabat, Morocco.

Powell, who opened his season with a 9.93 seconds performance behind fellow Jamaican countryman and world record holder Usain Bolt in Rome, will race over the 100 metres again.

He is hoping for a faster time on Sunday though.

“I don’t want this opportunity to pass by so will try for a very fast race,” Powell said.

In Rabat, Powell, the world bronze medallist, will have Portugal’s Francis Obikwelu as his main rival.

In the 200m Jamaican Marvin Anderson will start favourite to build on his win streak from Ostrava.
