Super Sally flying high Aussie star Sally Pearson celebrates her victory in Zurich Picture: AP ATHLETICS It was quite nerve wracking lining up for the first time as aworld champion AUSTRALIAS new world champion Sally Pearson dominated the 100m hurdles at the Zurich Diamond League meeting while world silver medallist Mitchell Watt pocketed $40,000 after winning the Diamond points race in the long jump. In her first event since being crowned world champion in Daegu last week, the Queenslander raced away to an easy victory in 12.52sec, leaving world bronze medallist and 2008 Olympic champion Dawn Harper trailing by nearly 3m at the finish. It was quite nerve-wracking lining up for the first time as a world champion to be honest, admitted Pearson. But I wanted to prove to every one that I am not just a one-timer. I can get out there after a massive run and still run consistently well. The 24-year-old became the fourth-fastest female hurdler of all time last week after her Australian record 12.28sec run in Daegu. The next race for the world champion is over 100m in Italy this weekend. Fellow Queenslander Watt won $40,000 for earning the most points in the mens long jump, after earlier wins in Stockholm and Shanghai. Its been a long season but a good one, said Watt.
