I’m excited to be a part of it,” said Powell. Other top names to confirm their participation are 2008 Olympic 100m hurdles champion Dawn Harper-Nelson, 2008 Olympic 100m silver medallist Richard Thompson, 2013 world 110m hurdles silver medallist Ryan Wilson and US Rio Olympian in women sprints Jenna Prandini. “One thing I truly like about the Nitro concept is that the athletes will have more interactions with the fans. I love competing but getting to talk with the fans and seeing their appreciation of your talent and hard work has a special place with me,” said Harper-Nelson.
