Asafa Powell 'a lot more cautious'


Taking a more cautious approach to this season, Asafa Powell may only compete in a couple of races before he tries to qualify for Jamaica's team to the IAAF World Championships in Russia at the National Championships set for mid-June. The 30-year-old sub-10 king, who has been plagued by injury over the past few seasons, is still recovering from a hamstring strain he suffered at the Stawell Gift in Australia in late March, but has resumed training in preparation for the Diamond League circuit, where prior to the World Championships in Russia he plans to compete sparingly.

"Normally, we would be doing a lot of races and try to do something special and something happens," he said. "This year, I am taking it easy and being a lot more cautious."
