Powell fills Bolt’s shoes


PARIS: Asafa Powell will attempt to fill the sizeable shoes of injured Jamaican compatriot Usain Bolt in the 100m at Saturday’s Diamond League meet in Paris (Sunday in Manila), still keen on lowering his personal best of 9.72 seconds — the fifth fastest time ever. The 32-year-old takes over star billing in the track’s blue riband event after Bolt pulled out with a problematic pelvis injury.
