Good news for fans of Jamaican track and field. Despite having problems in the Penn Relays last weekend, Olympic gold medalist Asafa Powell will compete in the next two big track and field circuit events.
The Jamaican Observer reports Powell will honor his commitment to the Qatar Super Grand Prix in Doha on May 8. Powell has also signed on to the Reebok Grand Prix May 30 in New York City: "This follows the former World 100m recordholder limping off the track after anchoring the Jamaica men's 4x100m relay team at the 115th Penn Relays last Saturday. Paul Doyle, Powell's agent, played down the injury, after the big sprinter jogged to the finish line in obvious discomfort."
