    somebody is in great shape early on, recorded 6.50 and 6.49 in a meet in Houston today!

    Ive always thought Asafa would should be awesome at 60m as it doesnt give him time to forget to run but he hardly ever competes indoors.
    i deserve extra credit

      apparently he showed up at the meet unannounced and asked if he could run the 60.

        Upon watching that a couple times - he looks really fit.

          Wow, I was hoping strongly to see Asafa this winter. With Gatlin passing the indoor season, and having his start been that strong in the past, he should be, barring injuries (as he always suffers from these more than others), a strong gold medal contender in Portland. Probably training was going well and so he decided to jump into a meeting. He ran twice, probably didn't think it was worth running thrice (the final). Great performance, btw.

            Powell was VERY impressive in both efforts yesterday. Not the best of starts in the prelims, but sheer, smooth power. In this form he would be nearly unbeatable at the WIC.

            Natasha Morrison also looked extremely good in running 7.15. It was apparently her first time ever to run indoors.

              Who is coaching Powell? Is Morrison in the same squad?

                  I believe his brother is coaching him, though I expect he won't contest world indoors.

                    He said, via Twitter, that his plans are to being there.

                      Powell is now 33 years old. His age is seldom mentioned although he's not much younger than Gatlin or Gay, whose ages have been a frequent topic for years. He has been at the top for as long as Gatlin, without a 4 year hiatus. I've always thought he would enjoy a long career, because he is such a natural - unlike Gay for whom sprinting always seems such a struggle. It would be awesome to see Powell finally deliver on his huge talent in Rio. Meanwhile, if he runs in Portland it will be a highlight for me ...

                        Asafa is coached by his brother Donovan Powell, in Texas at the Fast Twitch Factory. Morrison is part of the group now, along with Kerron Stewart.

                            I think it's well past time to let that go
