i thought the X-Man could make more…

What about Asafa? He makes consistently 9,8x without wind. So with tailwind that could be a 9,7x of course.
But: How long do you think Asafa can hold a WR-form staying healthy???

How many times this year has powell run under 10 seconds? His body must be in great shape to be able to handle that much constant stress, and have a good supporting team to keep him together.

Powell has just overtaken Greene in the number of consecutive sub-10s for a season, as well as other statistics:

I told yall to watch out for tyson, if he can get a start he could be lil closer to asafa. I doubt he beat asafa, but gay is having a career season.
