Former 100m world record-holder Asafa Powell is likely to miss the New York meeting on May 30 in spite of training well in the wake of an ankle injury his coach Stephen Francis said Wednesday.

"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," Francis said.

Powell missed this month's Super Grand Prix in Doha, after hobbling off the track at the Penn Relays on April 25 when he aggravated a left ankle injury.

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

Powell himself seemed eager to test himself in a race.

"I just want to go out there and get it over with," he said.
