Pearson dominates in Oslo


Sally Pearson equalled her own world leading time of 12.49 seconds in a dominant display over the 100m hurdles at the Diamond League meet in Olso on Thursday.

The world champion overcame a false start by British heptathlete Jessica Ennis to power home 0.07sec ahead of American Kristi Castlin, with US-born Briton Tiffany Porter taking third (12.70).

``I travelled 29 hours to get here, I'm a bit jet-lagged but I'm doing well,'' the 25-year-old Pearson said.

``I like being chased, it keeps me hungry. I'm not feeling the pressure because I'm feeling confident.''
