Former world 100m record holder Asafa Powell ran a season-best behind Ronnie Baker’s world-leading 9.87s today (Aug 22) in Chorzow, Poland on Wednesday.
Powell, who was out for several months with a hamstring injury, crossed the line in a season’s best of 10.24 seconds to finish fourth.
Baker’s world-leading at 2018 Kamila Skolimowska Memorial was also a personal best.
American Mike Rodgers (10.10) and 2017 World 200m champion Ramil Guliyev of Turkey, 10.21, rounded off the top three finishers.
