Birmingham: Sprinter Asafa Powell continued his impressive form this season, winning the men's 100 metres dash at the IAAF Diamond League meet here on Sunday.
The 28-year-old Jamaican ran within himself to secure a victory in 9.91 seconds, enduring wet and chilly conditions to slam a field of six others.
"It was so cold that I didn't push too much at the start, but I am happy with this," said Powell. "I just wanted to make sure of victory. We all want to get the best start, but when there are false starts, it puts you in a different zone. I was only going to do enough to win [this race]. I didn't want to push too hard. I just wanted to get the win."
