Pearson eyes 100m double at Glasgow Games
Australia's Sally Pearson competes in the women's 60m hurdles at the IAAF World Indoor Athletics Championships in Sopot, Poland, on March 7, 2014 - by Adrian Dennis
The Olympic hurdles champion extended her number of national titles to 13 when she won the 100-metres hurdles in 12.72 seconds in Melbourne on Sunday, a day after winning the 100m on the flat.
Pearson contested both events at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi and only a controversial false start in the flat race denied her two gold medals.
But with the likes of multiple world and Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and the other Caribbean sprint queens likely to compete in Glasgow, the competition will be tougher.
"I'm not expecting medals because I think this time around the best in the world will be attending the Commonwealth Games and they'll probably run 11.0s, 10.9s, who knows?" said Pearson, who has a 100m personal best time of 11.14.
"I'd really like to try and see how I would go against (Fraser-Pryce) because I'm always in good shape when I get to a major."
Pearson was one of 35 athletes to guarantee their spots in the Australian team for Glasgow during this weekend's trials.
They will be among up to 45 competitors officially named on Wednesday in a Commonwealth athletics squad that could eventually number more than 100.
Middle-distance runner Jeff Riseley won a dramatic 1500m in 3:46.47 and long jumper Robbie Crowther won a second national title with 8.03m.
Teenager Eleanor Patterson is still young enough to compete at the world juniors this year, but will instead be chasing Commonwealth gold in Glasgow after winning the high jump with 1.92m.
Dani Samuels, the 2009 discus world champion, set her first personal best in four years, with a huge throw of 66.81m.
