Powell says Usain Bolt is his main rival

Asafa Powell, who used to hold the world record for the 100 meter sprint says his main rival now is Usain Bolt, rather than American world champion Tyson Gay.

Powell and Bolt will meet for the first time in the 100 meters at the Jamaican championships in Kingston.

“I am really excited because the (athletes) from the Caribbean are running so well right now,” Powell said. “You have Darrel Brown, Marc Burns (both of Trinidad) and Usain Bolt.

“Gay is the only person outside the Caribbean who can challenge us right now.”
