Powell also won in the 100MMens in Stockholm, Sweden a week ago. Fellow Jamaican Usain Bolt holds the world record at 9.72 seconds. Powell seems to be peaking at the right time for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Odds makers seem to not have adjusted their lines to reflect Asafa Powell's recent win streak coming up to the 2008 Beijing Games. Asafa Powell will payout $300 for every $100 bet on him at this current line. USA track star Tyson Gay withdrew from a showdown with Powell at the 100M race in the London Grand Prix because of a slow recovery to his hamstring injury. Usain Bolt is the current favorite for the 100M Medal but has not declared that he will race in the 100M. Bolt is going to race for sure in the 200M. For current Olympic Betting Odds visit BetUS.
