MELBOURNE: Asafa Powell was thwarted by a strong headwind in posting a 10.23 seconds time to win the 100m at the World Athletics Tour meet here on Thursday.

The Jamaican former World record holder was hoping to go under 10secs and show he is on target to better compatriot Usain Bolt’s 9.69sec World record. Powell’s Olympic 4x100m relay gold medal-winning teammate Nesta Carter was second in 10.42. — AFP
