KINGSTON — Former 100m world record holder Asafa Powell is likely to miss the 2009 Reebok Grand Prix meeting at the end of month, his coach Stephen Francis said.

Powell, who is still recovering from a left ankle injury says his recovery and training is going well, but Francis says he will wait on next week to make a final decision. 

"He is fit, because he has not lost anything in his lay-off from the track, but in terms of racing, we just have to wait and see until next week," a report quoted Francis as saying.

The Jamaican sprint ace missed the Qatar Super Grand Prix in Doha earlier this month with the injury that he aggravated running the anchor leg for his national team at the Penn Relays on April 25 w.

Francis said Powell was receiving treatment from a Canadian specialist, and said it "seems as if he is good to go."
