Powell Promotes Youth Games

Jamaican athletes Asafa Powell (centre), Veronica Campbell-Brown (left) and Dexter Lee pose with the SYOG2010 mascots at the Singapore Youth Olympic Games headquarters yesterday. Asafa Powell, dethroned as the world's fastest man by Usain Bolt last year, said his compatriot can be beaten. "Well anybody can be beaten but in the 100 metres right now Usain is running very fast... so you really have to be at your best on that day to win the race," Powell said. "It's pretty much the best man wins on that day and there's no real superman or anybody that is invincible... so anybody can be beaten."
