Powell says 2007 will be bigger than 2006. Is that possible? Here's an article from IAAF:
Powell broke the 100m world record in Athens, won a share of the Golden League Jackpot, won gold at the Commonwealth Games, and was named world athlete of the year.
The 24-year-old says that he hopes to replicate his form in 2007, with a 100m and 200m double at the World Championships in Osaka, Japan in August the being ultimate aim.
“Next year is the World Championship year and I just don't want people to expect anything different,” he told the Observer.
“We will see how the season progresses, but the plan right now is to consider doubling in the World Championships.
“To do both events is kind of difficult, but it depends on how the season goes.”
Powell is part of the elite “MVP” athletics club in Jamaica that also contains the likes Sherone Simpson, and Powell says all the athletes at the club are looking to have big years.
“We are going out there to put out all or best again and try to make the best of it and put Jamaica on top”
“I had an awesome year. Sherone had an awesome year, and there are a lot more athletes up there by MVP who are waiting to break out.”
