Sally Pearson was in sparkling form on the Gold Coast
yesterday.


Pearson impresses at Coast meet
By Emma Greenwood

June 26th, 2011


SALLY Pearson yesterday put the icing on a career-best preparation with a pair of sizzling sprint times at the Gold Coast winter track meet before flying out for Europe.

Pearson sliced 0.14sec off her personal best in the 60m with a sizzling run of 7.16sec to set a new track record before backing up in the 100m less than an hour later to post a near season-best 11.21sec in the 100m.

The showing left her confident she is the strongest -- mentally and physically -- she has been in her career and led her to declare she can win a world championship.

"I'm going over there really confident," Pearson said of a European campaign that will kick off with a 100m hurdles run at the Diamond League meet in Lausanne, Switzerland on Friday morning.

"I don't usually say that I want to win.

``But knowing that my training and all my competitions this year have been really good and I'm feeling really good and injury free at the moment and hopefully onwards, I feel that I'm stronger and mentally stronger than I have been ever since I started the sport.

"So that's why I thought it was time I step up my level and say that I can win this."

Pearson will contest the 100m flat and hurdles at the world championships in Daegu, South Korea in August on the back of a two-month European preparation.

Pearson was one of several athletes to turn in strong performances in almost perfect conditions at the Griffith University track yesterday.

ACT sprinter Melissa Breen was also impressive in the 100m, going stride for stride with Pearson over the first 60m to clock 11.40sec.

Tamsyn Manou won the women's 400m in 53.32sec, with the first three finishers breaking the 54sec barrier.

Young gun Steve Solomon beat home a quality men's field in 46.75sec while Victoria's Sean Wroe won the 200m in 21.72sec backing up from the 400m earlier in the afternoon.

Hurdler heads abroad in personal-best shape
By Nicole Jeffery
The Australian
June 27, 2011


OLYMPIC silver medallist Sally Pearson was in the best shape of her life as she left Australia yesterday to begin her international season in the lead-up to the world championships in Daegu, South Korea, in August-September.

After a brilliant domestic season, Pearson has put in an equally spectacular training block which left her coach Sharon Hannan waxing lyrical yesterday.

"On Friday she did the best hurdles session she's ever done prior to leaving for Europe, and her competition on Saturday was awesome," Hannan said.

"She did a huge PB in the 60m (7.16sec, taking 0.14sec off her previous best) and she ran the first 10m faster than one of the 100m men.

"She's probably three weeks ahead of where she's been at this stage in other years."

Hannan predicted that Pearson could go close to her personal best 100m hurdles time (12.50s) in her first race in Europe, the Diamond League meet in Lausanne on Thursday.

"I think she can possibly run a 12.5," he said.

American Kellie Wells leads the world list for this year with a 12.58sec run in Doha, although she clocked a wind-assisted 12.53sec in the heats of the US trials at Eugene yesterday.

Wells shapes as the biggest obstacle to Pearson's world title ambitions this year.

Hannan attributed Pearson's fine preparation for this season to the momentum built through a strong domestic season where the sprint-hurdler became the first athlete in 43 years to win three national titles on the one weekend.

"With multiple races she got really, really fit and there have been no injuries," Hannan said.

However, there was a scare when Pearson crashed into a hurdle in training, hurting her right (trailing) foot.

"Last Tuesday she came off the last hurdle and went down like a ton of bricks," Hannan said.

"Her physio and her podiatrist think she probably separated the bones a little bit but they taped her up and she got through the next training session pain-free."

Pearson also intends to contest Diamond League meets in Birmingham (July 10), Monaco (July 22) and London (August 5-6) to prepare for the world titles.

Resurrected distance star Craig Mottram is also making progress in his bid to return to the national team for the first time since 2008.

Mottram finished a strong third behind Kenya's Olympic champion Augustine Choge in the 1500m at the Meeting Stanislas in Nancy, France, at the weekend.

WEEKEND UPDATE: Harradine and Pearson shine on busy weekend
AA Website
27.06.2011


It was a busy weekend for the Australian Flame, with athletes in action across Europe and also the Gold Coast. Benn Harradine recorded an impressive throw in Poland while Sally Pearson demonstrated once again that she is ready to set the track on fire, with two quick times on Australian soil.

Friday in France saw Craig Mottram make a welcome return to the track, following injury setback. He clocked 3:38.12 in his first 1500m of the season, which meant he placed third, with Augustine Choge (KEN) victorious in 3:36.23.

The Meeting Stansislas also saw a new world-lead time of 1:43.46 set in the 800m by Kenya’s David Rudisha. Lachlan Renshaw finished fifth in 1:46.25.

At the 57th Janusz Kusocinski Memorial in Sczcesin, Poland, Jeremy Roff placed ninth in the 1500m with a time of 3:40.27. Kenya’s Benson Seureu ran four seconds quicker to win the race.

The Polish crowd had reason to cheer when home favourite Piotr Malachowski threw a season’s best of 68.49. Harradine also had plenty to smile about when he recorded his second furthest throw of the season, 65.34m, to finish just behind the world and Olympic silver medallist.

Elsewhere in Europe Kim Mickle finished third in the javelin with a throw of 61.17 in Cottbus, Germany. The 26-year-old was out-thrown by Britain’s Goldie Sayers and home athlete Katharina Molitor (63.68).

On the track in Cottbus Youcef Abdi enjoyed success with a season’s best time of 8:31.39 in the 3000m steeplechase. While Abdi placed sixth, Kenya’s Able Kiprop Mutai won in 8:21.02.

There was also plenty of success at the Gold Coast Winter Series Meet, led by Pearson. Her winning time of 7.16 in the 60m was 0.14 off of her personal best while she was 0.01 seconds off her fastest time in 2011 over the 100m, winning in 11.21. Pearson now heads to Switzerland for her first Samsung Diamond League appearance on Thursday.

The other three members of the 4x100m Daegu-bound team finished close behind Pearson, with Melissa Breen in second (11.40), Charlotte Van Veenendaal in fourth (11.80) and Laura Whaler in sixth (12.00).

In the men’s sprints Sean Wroe won the 200m in 21.72. Steve Solomon took the 400m title in 46.75, followed by Tristan Thomas (46.84), Nick Boylett (46.97) and Joel Milburn (47.62).

Jody Henry was forced to withdraw from the women’s 400m owing to injury, but Tamsyn Manou (nee Lewis) proved again why she’s the fastest one-lap athlete in Oceania with another victory, in 53.32. Anneliese Rubie finished fourth and clocked 54.55.

Rounding out the weekend's starters on Sunday Benita Willis and Shawn Forrest ran strong races in Boston to finish fifth and sixth respectively across the 10km. Willis recorded 34.11, which was a season’s best time, while Forrest equaled his previous 29.10 set in New York to place sixth. The women’s 10km was won by Caroline Kilel (KEN) in 31:58 and the men’s by compatriot Geoffrey Mutai in 27:19.

Australians next take to the track tomorrow in Sweden, with national record holder Ryan Gregson set to take to the track for his first 1500m hit out in Europe this year.

Laura is still having hip problems. Went to see Sallys physio during the week and feeling much better. Also has to be remembered Sally and Mel have europeon campaigns so are in a different phase of their prep than Laura and Charlotte. Charlotte is certainly in very hard training. Still 8 weeks to go.
