2008 Telstra Melbourne Track Classic Recap and Results
Melbourne, 21/02/2008

*IAAF Recap Here

Order was restored at the Telstra Melbourne Track Classic Thursday night in Australia as Asafa Powell and Jeremy Wariner got convincing wins. Powell came in at less than 100%, nursing an injury from a fall down the stairs at his home that put stitches in his knee, and Wariner came in after opening the season with a 20.93 200 where he lost to Daniel Batman. However, Powell and Wariner both got dominating wins on Thursday.

Powell despite starting cautiously and letting up 10 meters before the finish won in 10.04 and told the IAAF afterwards: "This proves I’m way faster than 2006 (when he won the Commonwealth Games in Australia in 10.03 and went on to be undefeated and run a 9.77 world record)."

Jeremy Wariner ran 44.82, to make this his 3rd straight year to open the season with a sub 45 clocking. His fine run will at least for the short term, quite the critics of his decision to leave his long term coach Clyde Hart.

Aussie hero Craig Mottram outsprinted Shadrack Kosgei in the 5000m over the final 200m to win his 6th Australian title in 13:11. It followed his American all-comers record at 3000m at the Reebok Boston Games and his Wanamaker Mile loss to Bernard Lagat. Afterwards, Mottram said to Len Johnson of the Melbourne Age: "I'm as fit as I've ever been, and I'm looking forward to what's ahead".

In other action, Aussie Scott Martin smashed the Australian shot put record by throwing 21.27 (69' 9").
