Pearson on fire in perfect Perth conditions

Olympic silver medallist Sally Pearson has made her play for the Australian Athletics Tour sprints/hurdles crown in Perth tonight, with the Commonwealth champion one of many athletes benefitting from perfect weather conditions on day one of the Go for 2&5 Australian Athletics Tour Final.

Taking to the start line as division leader with 20 points, Pearson clocked IAAF world championships qualifiers of 11.20 (w: +0.5) and 12.85 (w: +0.6) to win the women’s 100m and 100m hurdles respectively.

“I don’t know why 11.10 isn’t coming in the 100m, I got out of the blocks strong and expected a little quicker tonight to be honest,” Pearson said.

“I know I can run quicker than I did tonight and it’s just a matter of making it happen I suppose.

“Coming back to the hurdles was great though, it’s always been my preferred event and despite good results in flat sprints this domestic season it will be my focus for world champs (sic).”

Now boasting a 25 point total, Pearson holds a commanding lead in the sprints/hurdles title race, with Lauren Boden needing a sub 55.16 run in the women’s 400m hurdles tomorrow night to challenge for the division crown.

In the men’s sprints it was Aaron-Rouge Serret out in front as the Commonwealth Games 100m finalist clocked 20.87 (w: +1.2) to win the men’s 200m and take his Tour point score to 17. Etching his first bonus points next to his name in the process, Rouge-Serret’s time was a season best, 0.05 seconds off his personal best and enough to all but guarantee a sprints/hurdles minor placing.

Also on track, Jeff Riseley and Lachlan Renshaw blazed the straight in the men’s 800m to bolster their chances for distance title supremacy. Stopping the clock at 1:47.95, Riseley edged out the national champion Renshaw (second, 1:48.20) and NSWIS scholarship holder James Kaan (third, 1:48:80) to take his point score total a lead equalling 20 points.

“Tonight was a good run, the weather provided a perfect opportunity but no one really took it up to anyone so the time wasn’t overly quick,” Riseley said.

“I haven’t done a heap of work across 800m so overall a win is great and hopefully that will help my race for some prize money.”

Commonwealth Games representative Kaila McKnight joins Riseley in the lead after winning the women’s 1500m in a time of 4:21.51 to take her Tour point score to 20 and confirm her spot in the minor placings at worst for the distance crown.

In other track highlights:

- Estonian Maris Magi won the women’s 400m in a time of 52.90, just ahead of 15-time national champion Tamsyn Lewis (second, 52.99) and South Australian Rosie Kelly (third, 54.87).

- Flame athlete Melissa Breen and Laura Whaler clocked season best performances of 11.46 (w: +0.5) and 11.69 to place second and third in the women’s 100m.

On the runway, QAS scholarship holder Kane Brigg has made a late play for a minor placing in the jumps division. Soaring 16.97m in the men’s triple jump, Brigg’s performance was a 50 centimetre personal best, takes the 2006 Commonwealth Games high jump representative to fifth on the Australian All-Time List and increases his final point score to 19.

“My season has started pretty slowly but the result tonight is just awesome,” Brigg said.

“I will head home from here and celebrate a little bit before a big shift in focus to Nationals in two week.”

Meanwhile in the thrower’s circle, national champions Benn Harradine and Dani Samuels have dominated the men’s and women’s discus throw.

Arriving in Perth after a 65.60m world championships qualifier only two weeks ago, Harradine heaved 62.76m in the final round to take victory and begin his domestic campaign strongly.

“I’m always keen to perform well at home and tonight is probably the start of bigger things to come,” Harradine said.

“I’m in pretty good shape and hope that at Nationals and then in Europe I can really build towards a great world championships campaign.”

In the women’s event, Samuels best mark of 62.20m was her first world championships qualifier. Taking her point score total to 24 after 13 points (10 + 3 bonus points) tonight, Samuels will now finish second at worst in the throws division.

“It’s so good to have a qualifier next to my name, I know I don’t need it but to have one is just so fantastic,” Samuels said.

“I still need to improve my series but with consistent bigger throws that will come.”

In other field highlights:

- Josh Lodge leapt a season best 2.20m to win the men’s high jump and edge out Western Australian Thomas Brennan (second, 2.10m) and South African Jonathon Coetsee (third, 2.05m)

- Soaring 13.49m, Victorian Linda Allen won the women’s triple jump in a season best performance.

- Russian Sergey Kucheriany (5.50m) won the men’s pole vault ahead of Joel Pocklington (second, 5.10m) and James Filshie (third, 4.95m)

Competition continues at the Western Australian Athletics Stadium tomorrow, with Mitchell Watt and Fabrice Lapierre set to face off in the men’s long jump in arguably the best head-to-head duel of the Australian domestic season.

On the track, Jana Pittman-Rawlinson will compete for the first time in Australia since 2006 in the women’s 400m hurdles and Sean Wroe, Ben Offereins and Kevin Moore will face off in the men’s 400m.

WINNER: Sally Pearson takes the 100m hurdles final during the Australian Athletics Tour at the West Australian Athletics Centre.

Sally Pearson takes 100m in 'slow' 11.20, but wins 100m hurdles in Perth
Chris Pike
Perth Now Website
March 31, 2011

SALLY Pearson might have been disappointed with her time in the 100m sprint, but she leaves Perth as the queen of the sprint and 100m hurdles events.
Sally Pearson and Dani Samuels are both satisfied with how they are shaping up for the world championships in Korea later this year after strong performances at the Australian Athletics tour final in Perth.

While the focus now turns to the return to Australia of Jana Pittman-Rawlinson, who will run the 400m hurdles in her first race in the country since 2006 and her first anywhere since 2009, Pearson and Samuels put in strong performances on Thursday night.

While Pearson wasn't happy with her 100m sprint, she still comfortably won in a time of 11.20 seconds before then putting in a tremendous 100m hurdles effort of 12.85.

Those victories put her in the box seat to claim the sprints/hurdles title and the $10,000 prize money.

The 24-year-old Commonwealth Games gold medallist and Olympics silver medallist is looking forward to the 200m on Friday night.

``I've run 200s all season and I'm hoping for a good time,'' Pearson said.

``I've been wishing to run under 23 seconds all season so that's what I'm hoping for, but it's not 100 per cent my main focus.

``I knew that I would be pretty dominant in the sprints division so my whole goal for the season was to do as good as I could, get the best times that I could and come out with the $10,000 win.

``It just allows me to be a bit more flexible with my money.

``I've got good sponsors and support to help me along, but this could help me go business class instead of economy.''

Discus world champion Samuels is happy with her preparation as well as she looks towards Daegu, Korea, for the world championships beginning in August.

``It's looking pretty much the same as 2009,'' Samuels said.

``During the domestic season I remember I threw 60 at nationals then and was throwing 62 consistently in the European season so I knew I was ready for something pretty big at the world championships.

``I'm not going to peak and freshen up until three weeks before the world championships.

``My goal for this year is a world championship medal so we are only going to peak for that.''

Samuels threw two good first attempts on Thursday with 62.20m and 61.81m efforts.

Earlier Pearson was frustrated with her "slow'' 11.20sec 100 winning time.

Even though she won comfortably ahead of the ACT's Melissa Breen (11.46 seconds) and NSW's Laura Whaler (11.69), she was far from happy.

"Why would I be (happy)? I wanted 11.10. I ran slower than I expected. It's as simple as that and I can't explain it,'' Pearson said.

"My start seemed pretty strong even though it's hard to tell when you've just run a race, you have to go back and analyse it with your coach. I don't really know what happened, I just wasn't fast enough. I told everyone I wanted to run 11.10 and it didn't happen.

"These are the perfect conditions and I don't understand it. I only ran a hundredth of a second slower in Sydney and it was a wet track there.

"This has been hot and dry for a long time because it hasn't rained, and there was a huge tail wind, so I just don't understand it.''

In Friday night's action Jana Pittman-Rawlinson returns in the 400m hurdles.

It will be her first time running in Australia since 2006 and first time anywhere in the world since 2009.

Looking at the photo of Pearson, she hasn't zipped up the outer covering of her spikes.
