No hurdles too high for Pearson in Olympic year

No hurdles too high for Pearson in Olympic year

Sally Pearson doesn't bother trying to conceal her ambitions now that she's a world champion.
An Olympic gold medal is top of her list for 2012. A world record in the 100-meter hurdles would be a bonus.
With the London Olympics track program still five months away, Pearson is setting her sights high for her first trip to the World Indoor championships next week, targeting a time of 7.70 seconds in the 60-meter hurdles. The world record is 7.68.
She can afford to be confident at Istanbul. She's renowned for being quick out of the blocks, and she's started the year with a bang.
Pearson won the national Olympic trials in 12.49 seconds on a wet and miserable weekend in Melbourne, the fastest time ever for a 100 hurdles on Australian soil.
