Asafa Powell returned to winning ways on Saturday by taking the men's 60m at the 42nd edition of the Milo Western Relays at GC Foster College at Angels, St Catherine on Saturday.

The 37-year-old Powell of MVP Track Club clocked 6.73 seconds to beat Sprintec Lions' Andrew Fisher in a close finish in section one of the three-section race. Fisher was also credited with the same time as Powell.

Powell was one of the most dominant sprinters of his era, consistently breaking the 10-second barrier and twice setting the world 100m record in 2005 and 2008. The second time he did it with a blazing 9.74 seconds.

Powell also won a gold medal in the 4x100m relay at the Rio Olympics and competed in three Summer Games.

A statue of the sprinter is set to be unveiled at Statue Park inside Independence Park Ltd on Sunday.

Dwayne Extol looks forward to some exciting match-ups in the finals of the Digicel Grand Prix finals set for GC Foster College on Saturday.

Olympic champions Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Elaine Thompson as well as former 100m world record holder Asafa Powell, head a strong cast of Jamaica’s elite athletes listed to compete at the 41st MILO Western Relays at GC Foster College in St. Catherine, Jamaica on Saturday.

Jamaica’s Sprintec Track Club and the GC Foster College on Friday formalised a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the intent of paving a path to them becoming powerful forces in world athletics.
