Canadian sprint star Andre de Grasse and Jamaica's Asafa Powell will contest in the men's 100m on May 7 at the IAAF World Challenge meet in Kingston, Jamaica.


Andre de Grasse who clocked his PB of 9.92 to take bronze at last year's world championships will face former 100m world record holder Asafa Powell. 

In 2016 season the 21-year ran 19.88 seconds to break Canadian 200m record. 

Asafa Powell last Saturday at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Portland Powell clocked the fastest time indoors of 6.44 in 60m dash in preliminary rounds and later in the final he took silver medal. The race organizers say that USA's Mike Rogers will also compete in the men's 100m. 

Olympic and world champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce will face  world 200m silver medallist Elaine Thompson in the women's 100m. 

All four Jamaican ladies, Novlene Williams-Mills, Shericka Jackson, Stephenie Ann McPherson and Christine Day, who beat the USA's team in the women's 4x400m relay in Beijing last year will race the 400m.

Women's 100m hurdles have been boosted by 2013 world champion Brianna Rollins and Sharika Nelvis who posted fastest time in the world last season.
