Asafa Powell hits back at critics following Olympic performance

Despite the unprecedented success of our growing sprint legends during these Olympic games in London, it appears that the failure of another Jamaican athlete has somewhat overshadowed the achievements accomplished by the island’s track stars in recent days.

Former world-record holding sprinter, Asafa Powell has taken loads of criticism from fans after pulling up during the highly anticipated 100m final on Sunday. Despite the fact that fellow sprint superstars, Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake won gold and silver in the event respectively, giving Jamaica 1-2 in an Olympic 100m final for the second straight summer games, most of the talk surrounded Powell and his unfortunate set of circumstances during the final, when he injured his groin and finished last in the event.
