OSLO, Norway (AP) — Asafa Powell will run in the 100 meters at the Diamond League meet in Oslo in June, setting up duel with world record-holder Usain Bolt.

Organizers say the two Jamaicans will go head-to-head at the Bislett Games on June 7, less than two months before the London Olympics.

Powell won the Diamond League title last year and his season's best of 9.78 seconds was the second fastest time, after Bolt's 9.76.

Bolt earlier announced he'd be competing in Oslo.
