Sally Pearson is back and getting another gold medal at the Olympic Stadium in London.
Australia's Sally Pearson bounced back from two years of injury hell to reclaim the 100 metres hurdles world title in London.
American veteran Dawn Harper Nelson was second, .04 seconds behind, and Pamela Dutiewicz of Germany took bronze in 12.72.
After contemplating hanging up the spikes, the 30-year-old qualified fastest for the final and held her nerve to add to her triumph at the 2011 world championships.
"I remember someone saying "you can be the world champion again" and I didn't feel awkward about that".
"Far out", she said afterwards.
Pearson's winning time was actually slower than in her semifinal, in which she breezed to victory in a 12.53, though it seems unlikely that the two-time World champion will be too bothered as she capped off her return from injury with one of the sport's biggest prizes.

Harper-Nelson proved that age is no barrier to success as at 33 she enjoyed a second wind in her career.
"Silver tastes like gold tonight".
"At the end, I could see Sally had won and I thought "it's me and Sally again". However, the American was overhauled by strong finishes from Harper-Nelson and Dutkiewicz (and eventually Harrison, who finished in fourth after a strong final two hurdles) though no one could get close to the Australian, who took the victory.
The race was over as a contest as Pearson hurdled impeccably to hit the line in 12.53sec a broad grin spreading across her face and then clenched her fists in celebration.
"I don't know if it was surprise or what, but the emotion just escaped my body because I was so excited and so happy to have achieved what I have worked so hard for", Pearson said.
"From the first day I started training (in August 2016) I knew it was possible, I knew I could get here", she said.
