>> September 03, 2011

Australia's Sally Pearson has becomes the champion of the world in the women's 100m hurdles. Sally, the 2008 Olympic silver medalist surged out of the blocks like a bullet, leaving the fields by huge margin even before the halfway and cross to the line with an outstanding time of 12.28s (+1.1), a new Australian record, new Oceania record and 4th fastest time of all-time. Her time makes the current lists of all-time performances a little bit shaky.

Sally is coached by Sharon Hannan for more than 10 years now and they're based in Griffith University, Southport campus at Queensland - a small training track but well equipped with world-class facilities.
