World champs sixth placer Ginnie Powell entered in Zurich...

ZURICH, Switzerland--Rainier Beach High School graduate Ginnie Powell (left/photo by Paul Merca), who finished sixth in the finals of the 100 meter hurdles at the IAAF World Track & Field Championships in Berlin last week, is entered in her specialty at the Weltklasse Zurich meet Friday.

The Zurich meet, part of the Golden League series, is perhaps the best one-day annual invitational track meet on the circuit.

Powell will face a field that includes five other world championships finalists, including all three world championships medalists.

Notably absent from the field is WSU All-American and former world champ at 1500 and 5000 meters Bernard Lagat, who was spiked in the semi-finals of the 5000 last week, and needed medical attention afterwards.

The complete start list for the Weltklasse meet is available here.

The Zurich meet will be aired online at starting at 10:50 am on Friday.
