London, Mar 25 (ANI): World’s fastest man Usain Bolt will take on arch-rival Asafa Powell over 100 metres for the first time this season in Rome in May, after missing most of the 2010 with an Achilles injury.

The Jamaican will warm up for this summer’s World Championships, where he will defend his 100m and 200m titles, against fellow countryman Powell at a Diamond League meeting in the Italian capital on May 26.

Powell set a world 100m record of 9.74secs himself in Italy in 2007, a mark which Bolt has since broken three times, The Sun reports.

His last world mark of 9.58secs was at the 2009 world Championships in Berlin. (ANI)
