ATHLETICS: Powell to redeem himself in Ostrava

Published:Thursday | June 27, 2013 | 9:09 AM

Following his disappointment of not making the Jamaican team to this summer’s World Championships in Russia, Asafa Powell will try to redeem himself at the Golden Spike Meeting in Ostrava today.



The former world record holder will contest the men’s 100 metres, just five days after a seventh place finish at Jamaica's National Senior Trials for the World Championships in Kingston.



Thirty-year-old Powell will face off with Dwain Chambers of Great Britain and veteran sprinter Kim Collins from St Kitts and Nevis.



Ristananna Tracey, fresh from a good victory at the Jamaican World Championships trials, will also be in action.



Tracey will contest the women’s 400-metre hurdles.



Two other Jamaicans are scheduled to take the track.



They are Pete Matthews in the men’s 400 metres and Andrea Bliss in the women’s 100-metre hurdles.
