It was another day without medals for Jamaica at the IAAF World Championships on a wet and frigid day in London, England, but despite the lack of podium finishes for the country there were some outstanding performances from which the country will draw many positives.

Omar McLeod lifted the gloom in the Jamaican camp on Monday when he won gold in the men’s 110m hurdle final at the IAAF World Championships in London. Following two days of despair where both Usain bolt and Elaine Thompson had failed to land expected gold medals, it was left up to the Olympic Champion to deliver the goods.

Asafa Powell who holds a personal best of 19.90 seconds over the 200m dating back to 2006 explained that he is learning to run the 200m again and hinted to the possibility of running the sprint double at the National Trials in June, this after winning the men’s 200m at the Jamaica International Invitational Meet inside the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica last weekend.

“Honestly I don’t remember how to run the 200, so it’s a work in progress and hopefully by national trials I can get there," Powell suggested.
