“Training has been going as well as it should be, I’ve got today’s race out of the way and shaken all the cobwebs out. I’ve not missed a session since I came back from world indoors and I’m feeling as great as possible before flying out," said Pearson.
“A bit quicker in the hurdles would have been nice, I was pushing for a time similar to what they ran in Rome yesterday [Dawn Harper: 12.66], but the conditions aren’t ideal today and we’re talking about a small meet in Brisbane rather than a big stage like that.
“The times here today are almost the same as what I ran before heading over for world champs prep last year, and that was in beautiful warm sunshine on theGold Coast so on the whole I am pretty happy.
Pearson's next race will be at the Bislett Games in Oslo on Thursday, which is part of the IAAF's Diamond League series.
"I’m leaving on Monday and I just can’t wait to get over there, it’s going to be a smashing field in Oslo.
"So many of the girls are running because it provides a chance to run heats and then a final. It will be really exciting."
“I don’t know if I am ahead of where I was this time last year, but I do know that I’m not going to the Games for silver again and that I am capable of running the time needed to win. There is never a guarantee in sport but I will do 110 percent to make it happen for both me and Australia."
