Powell smashes 100m world record
Jamaican Asafa Powell broke the world 100m record by clocking 9.74 secs at the IAAF Grand Prix in Rieti.
Powell, the bronze medallist at the recent World Championships, shaved 0.03 of the record he previously set in Athens two years ago.

Typical really, he can't do it on the big stage yet, but an impressive time.
I wonder if he'd trade it for the WC gold though, I doubt it.
He needs to bring it at the Olympics next year though.
