Asafa Powell won 100m at Rieti Grand Prix

Asafa Powell ran the 100 meters in 9.99 seconds into a strong headwind at the Rieti Grand Prix in Italy on the same track where two years ago he set a world record of 9.74 that has since been broken. In perhaps the outstanding performance of the night, 20-year-old David Rudisha of Kenya clocked 1 minute 42.01 seconds in the 800 to break Sammy Koskei’s 25-year-old African record of

1:42.28 and register the best performance of the year at the distance.
