Jamaica's pre-Olympic camp at the University of Birmingham is finally complete with the arrival of former 100m world record holder Asafa Powell a short while ago.
Powell, who is expected to represent Jamaica in the 100m and 4x100m at the Olympic Games is the last of the country's 47 track and field representatives to arrive at the camp.
Team manager Ludlow Watts confirmed that the star sprinter was in fact settled in camp.

The MVP Track Club yesterday thanked the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) and the Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA) for approving the delayed arrival of the sprinter and a number of his club-mates to the camp, which started on July 15.
Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Melaine Walker, Brigitte Foster-Hylton and Kaliese Spencer arrived in Birmingham on Monday and were seen training at the university's Munrow Sports Centre earlier today.
"We thank the JAAA/JOA for their understanding & more importantly approval of the arrival dates for our athletes to the JA pre-Olympic camp," read the MVP note, which was posted to popular social media platform Twitter.
