Ginnie Powell sixth in Paris Golden League meet Friday...

Rainier Beach graduate Ginnie Powell finished sixth in the Paris Golden League 100-meter hurdle race Friday in a time of 12.89.

Running in lane one, Powell, the two time US national champion in 2006 and 2007 who struggled at the Olympic Trials with a left hamstring pull, got out of the blocks stronger than she did in the Rome Golden League meet last week.

Doreen Ennis-London of Jamaica won the event in a time of 12.66. Defending Olympic champion Joanna Hayes of the USA was second in 12.76, and Dawn Harper, who will go to Beijing in this event as a member of Team USA, got third in 12.79.
