Asafa Powell 2nd to Justin Gatlin’s 9.88 in 100m Eugene Diamond League

Jamaica’s former world record holder Asafa Powell managed to finish 2nd among his greatest American rivals Justin Gatlin, Tyson Gay, Mike Rodgers and the emerging Andre De Grasse of Canada in the Men’s 100m race at the Eugene Diamond League held in Oregon, USA, on Saturday.

Powell clocked a time of 9.94 behind Gatlin’s 9.88, which is not a world-lead due to the wind assist.

Tyson Gay finished 3rd in 9.98 while Mike Rodgers came in 4th in a time of 9.99 seconds. Watch the race below.
