Osafa Powell, the world record holder in the men's 100m dash (9.77 seconds) and therefore the owner of the title "the fastest man in the world," has signed up for all 6 meets:
'“Since running 9.97 for 100m in Belgrade on 29 May my training has gone extremely well and I am very confident that I can combine the twin goals of a successful Golden League campaign with gold medal winning performances at the World Championships in Osaka,” said Powell from his base in Kingston, Jamaica.'
