News Americas, KINGSTON, Jamaica, Fri. Oct. 18, 2013: Get ready for the world’s former fastest man, Asafa Powell, in your living room, 365 days of the year.
Powell is set to release his 2014 calendar on October 25th, featuring sexy shots of him for each of the 12 months of the year.
The calendars are the newest addition to the sprinter’s Team Asafa line of products and memorabilia that are currently sold via the Shop Asafa tab on his website, www.iamasafa.com.
“The photos for each month are completely detachable. So when the month is done, the photos actually become collectable posters, and we also added the first four months of 2015 as another bonus for fans,” said Tara Playfair-Scott, Powell’s publicist.
Powell shot to international stardom in June 2005 when he broke the 100-m world record (then 9.78) with a time of 9.77 seconds. In September 2007, Powell shattered the record again, stopping the clock at 9.74 seconds. The decorated sprinter has had the honor of representing Jamaica at the Olympics, World Games and the Commonwealth Games.
Powell holds the record for the most sub-10 second 100m runs in the history of the sport.
The calendar comes as Powell and his MVP teammate Sherone Simpson are to face the disciplinary panel of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission in January next year.
They were among five Jamaicans who tested positive at the World Championship trials in June.
