Asafa Powell out of USA vs. the World

In addition to the video from the USATF press conference, there was some big news.

According to USATF spokeswoman Jill Geer, Jamaican star Asafa Powell will not race tomorrow because of a pectoral injury suffered last week at the Mt. SAC relays in California.

He is quite possibly the biggest star in world track right now, and it would have brought a real serious buzz to Franklin Field tomorrow. Too bad.
