At a time when most Jamaicans are normally asleep on a Saturday morning, Usain Bolt will be jolting them all awake as many of his fans nervously await his return to the track.

Asafa Powell is no doubt the favourite athlete of Jamaican track and field fans at home. The reaction that he receives inside the National Stadium, especially from the women, is like no other. His rippling washboard abs, bulging biceps, massive thighs and legs, when coated with layers of sweat has the ladies, young and old in a tizzy every time he runs.
