      I think we see Mo Greene's record staying in tact after tonight. I see Powell getting close to it though

        I don't know. I bet Safa's still a little fired up about the recent record-breaking results and is wanting to grab a headline or two. Plus, Rome has been the site of so many memorable races and is obviously quite fast.
        If you're ever walking down the beach and you see a girl dressed in a bikini made out of seashells, and you pick her up and hold her to your ear, you can hear her scream.

          True - my thoughts are more optimistic than real [being a huge Mo Greene fan] ! I hope Powell puts on a good show - anyone know if the conditions are conducive to fast sprint times 2nite?

            He sounds very optimistc about running fast. On BBC site it says:

            "Asafa Powell has set his sights on producing a "special" performance at the Rome Golden League on Friday."

            They quote Powell:
            "I want to go out and prove something," Powell said. "All the ingredients are there for a fast run on Friday. I'm much stronger this year and there is a great chance of something special if I can run as I should."

                Nice! Track seems fast, then. We just need a tad bit more wind. ;o)

                      these seems like fast conditions - zebra ( who's not in top shape ) runs 10.01 & kikaya a 44.66

                      nice +ve wind & safa coud go 9.73 - 9.74

                        Certainly can beat Mo's track record. Why do you think so slow Jay?

                          He won't beat 9.80, let alone the WR, if his RT is anything like those in the 'B Race' [0.2 avg] - he needs below 0.160 [just like he did in Athens 0.150 & Gateshead 0.145] to challenge sub-9.80 / WR - a 0.2+ ain't gonna get it done. Mind you, I've never seen Asafa get a poor RT but maybe the starter is further away from the athletes tonite than usual

                            Tired, no competition, jog it - a la Bislett. Hope I'm wrong.

                              i think i read somewhere that he won't ease up anymore - besides, he's got motivaion now - he wants outright wr & you can't do that by easing off
