Powell clocked 9.93 and European champion Christophe Lemaitre crossed third in 10.00.

Bolt had not competed since he was beat by Tyson Gay in Stockholm last August, snapping the Jamaican's two-year unbeaten streak. The triple Olympic and world champion then ended his season because of back and Achilles' tendon problems.
