Alex Chang Women’s world 100m hurdle champion, Sally Pearson, insists that she is the one to beat at London 2012, despite a mishap at the recent London Grand Prix at Crystal Palace. The Queenslander stated that, if her rivals could only just beat her when she runs badly, then they do not stand a chance of doing it again when she is fit. Pearson hurt her back in a fall during the warm-up session in London; then, in rainy conditions, she ran a time of 12.59 to finish second to Kellie Wells of the USA. That was her first defeat in 10 months, but Pearson maintains that it was just a blip. She believes that her best time so far, this year, 12.40 seconds, would be enough to beat her biggest rivals, Brigitte Foster-Hylton of Jamaica, whose best this year is 12.51, and current Olympic champion, Dawn Harper, who has run 12.60. Pearson has yet to recapture the form that saw her set a personal best of 12.28, last year, but she knows that she is capable of that time, and has worked hard with her coach, Sharon Hannan, to ensure that she reaches something approaching that standard, if she is to justify the expectancy back home. Pearson continued to train, this week, at the Australian team’s camp at Tonbridge School in Kent, and showed no sign of her past back troubles.That is bad news for her rivals, including Wells who did a dance of delight when winning at Crystal Palace. The first round heats at the Olympic Stadium begin on 6th August, and Pearson reckons that Wells “won’t be doing the dance, because she won’t have gold.”
