Asafa Powell, Guinness World Record Holder for the most sub-10 times over 100m in the history of Track and Field, finished 7th.

Having won the men’s 100m Diamond Race title last season, Asafa Powell has had a troubling season so far with injury ending his hopes of a spot on Jamaica’s World Championships team back in June. Powell has only competed four times this season over the 100m – once on the Diamond League circuit in Doha, where he registered his best time this year, 10.08 seconds.
