Video of Usain Bolt Racing Asafa Powell in Rome Today

May 26, 2011

World record holder Usain Bolt race former world record holder Asafa Powell in the men's 100m at the Compeed Golden Gala in Rome today before 47,000 fans. Also in the field was Christophe Lemaitre, the young sprinter from France, who last year became the first white man ever to break 10.00 in the 100m.

Rather than just give you the results we figured some of you might want to watch it without knowing the results

This race will also air on Universal Sports TV from 10pm-12pm eastern tonight (our assumption the 100 will air around 11:45 pm eastern).

Men's 100m from Rome below. The race starts fairly quickly in the video. Lemaitre is in lane 3, Bolt in lane 4, and Powell in lane 6.
