Sally Pearson suffers another injury setback, complicating preparation for world champs

OLYMPIC champion Sally Pearson has suffered another injury setback, further complicating her preparation for this year's world championships.

Pearson re-injured the hamstring which caused her to miss the Australian domestic season during a relay race in Sri Lanka yesterday.

The defending 100m hurdles world champion is now expected to be sidelined for at least another month.

She was expected to compete over hurdles for the first time this season at Manchester's Great City Games on May 25.

Athletics Australia head coach Eric Hollingsworth said he was awaiting further reports into the status of the injury.

"It's the same hamstring she did earlier in the year,'' he said.

"But at this point it looks like only a grade one so it's not a killer.

"The response after it was good, there was no pain after the testing so we're hopeful it's not as bad as we first thought.''

Pearson was at the Asian Grand Prix meet trying to qualify Australia's 4x100m relay team for the world championships which are in Moscow in August.

The team, which comprised Monica Brennan, Melissa Breen, Ashley Whittaker and Pearson, had cruelly missed the qualifying time (44sec) by just .06sec last week in Thailand.

Pearson, who only added the relay races to her plans late last month, is understood to have injured the hamstring three-quarters of the way through her relay leg yesterday.

Hollingsworth said he was confident the setback wouldn't impact on the defence of her title in Moscow.

"We're going to pull her out of a couple of meets and take her preparation late into the championships now,'' he said.

"She is in good shape and the good thing is that generally with her, because she trains with such an intensity once she's back, it shouldn't be too long before she is back into race shape.''

Pearson's main rival Dawn Harper, the silver medallist from the London Olympics, returned to competition on Saturday winning the Doha Diamond League event in 12.60sec.

Fellow American and Olympic bronze medallist Kellie Wells was second in 12.73sec.
