Instant Analysis - Asafa Powell Shows Up

-Stuttgart, Germany - It looked like another Jamaican track practice. Asafa Powell made overtures about breaking the 100-meter world record after running 9.87 in the rain of Gateshead, 9.72 in Lausanne and 9.82 in Brussels.

The chilly weather thwarted Powell's run at the record but he had two impressive runs. He ran 9.77 to win his heat and, within an hour, 9.82 to win the final.
