"He has the title of being the world record holder and I have the title of being the world champion and I think that is really good for the sport.

"If I run back-to-back rounds in London that will catapult me to the Olympics so I am really looking to run fast times in London."

Powell said the London grand prix was always one of the biggest meetings on the season.

"I always look forward to it, it's always exciting, it's just a special meet," he said.

The winner of the race will be awarded $50,000 prize money.
