Sally tracking for world medal
SALLY Pearson believes winning a medal at next week’s London world championships would go down as one of her greatest achievements.
The 2012 Olympic hurdles champion is returning to the scene of her career highlight with renewed excitement after fighting her way back from two years of injury problems.
Pearson, 30, hasn’t competed at a major championships since she won the 100m hurdles gold medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
But after an impressive return to the international scene – her season’s best 12.48sec makes her the third fastest in the world this year – has the 2011 world champion right back in the mix.
“I would love, deep down, I would love a medal. I really would love a medal … any colour,” she said.
