What a star.

Sally Pearson, now 30 years old, has won the 100m hurdles final at the world athletics championships in London.

She crossed the line in 12.59 seconds, repeatedly yelling “oh my God” as she pulled up in realisation of her achievement.

“Far out,” she said afterwards. “That was bloody hard.”

She added: “This is just so incredible, to be a world champion again.”

Pearson missed the Rio Olympics because of a hamstring injury, and also missed the 2015 world titles after breaking her wrist from a fall on the track.
