Oz track and field athlete Pearson eyeing 'first title' at Delhi CWG

Australian track and field athlete Sally Pearson reckons that the withdrawal of some of the best racers from the Delhi Commonwealth Games is disappointing, but feels that it is also an opportunity for her to claim her first major title.


New Delhi, Oct 1: Australian track and field athlete Sally Pearson reckons that the withdrawal of some of the best racers from the Delhi Commonwealth Games is disappointing, but feels that it is also an opportunity for her to claim her first major title.

Canadians Priscilla Lopes-Schliep and Perdita Felicien have pulled out of October 3-14 Games, robbing the 100 metres hurdles' of its appeal.

"It is quite disappointing that the best aren't here because it would have been like a world championships final. But you can only beat who is in the race, and that's all I can do really," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted Pearson, as saying.

"I don't really know why the other athletes have dropped out. It is really late in the season, but it's a Commonwealth Games, it's an Australian team, you're running for your country, and that's why I am here. And, being a bit selfish, I want my first title," she added.

Pearson further said that her experience at the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games would prove to be vital.

"It was more of an eye-opener of what you have to do to be able to be an elite athlete. It was a really good building block, and I saw how much I wanted to be a world champion and an Olympic champion," she said.
