Olympic champion Liu Xiang of China will renew his rivalry with American world champion Allen Johnson at the IAAF Golden League meeting at Paris on July 1, a meet official told AFP here.

Other Americans headed to Paris in the wake of their national championship meet, which ends here on Sunday, include 200m world champion John Capel, 400m hurdles standout Bershawn Jackson and Leonard Scott, training partner of Maurice Greene in the 100m.

Greene will decide on his participation depending on the results of the 100m in the US championships, which also serve as the US trials for this year's World Championships in Helsinki.

Organizers also confirmed a couple of notable absences in Paris - world and Olympic 400m hurdles champion Felix Sanchez of the Dominican Republic and new 100m world-record holder Asafa Powell of Jamaica.

Both are also expected to miss the July 5 Super Grand Prix meeting at Lausanne.
