Powell to race Bolt in 100 meters at London GP

Jul 15, 2009 - 2:22 PM LONDON(AP) -- Asafa Powell will race against world-record holder Usain Bolt in the 100-meter race at next week's London Grand Prix.

The 26-year-old Powell is unbeaten over the distance at Crystal Palace. The former world-record holder has won on his three previous visits.

The London GP is scheduled for July 24 and 25.

Bolt won both the 100 and 200 at the Beijing Olympics and set a world record in both events. He and Powell were part of Jamaica's 4x100 relay team, which also won gold in record time.
