London Olympics 100m hurdle Champion Sally Pearson is back training for her event after battling to overcome a hamstring injury she suffered in January.

Pearson missed the Australian track season due to torn hamstring, but is now back on track training hard.

"Everything's looking up," told pearson.

"I started hurdling on Monday, which is probably almost eight months since I competed at the Olympics.

"It's the longest time I've had off hurdling but at the same time I think it's going to work well for me when I go overseas."

 The set back had helped Pearson to prepare her body to do more load in practices helping her to train harder for the European track season and the World Champs that will take place in August.

"We weren't planning on having a huge hurdling conditioning but because of the injury I've had to stop competition in Australia and move on to my fitness training," she said.

"It's a bit more confidence for me to know that I'm going to be hurdling for a bit more longer than I was going to be." concluded Pearson.
