Ginnie Powell ninth at Golden Gala in Rome...

Rainier Beach HS grad Ginnie Powell was ninth in the 100 meter hurdles at the Golden Gala meet in Rome, clocking 13.17.

Powell, positioned on the outside in lane 9, was never a factor in the race, still getting over the effects of a left hamstring pull suffered in May which set her training back and led to a sixth place finish at the Olympic Trials.

The Golden Gala was highlighted by a world record clearance in the pole vault by Yelena Isinbayeva of 16-6 (5.03m).
