"That was bloody hard", she said after the race.

But none more than sheer pride.

Pearson broke her wrist in 2015 and missed the 2016 Olympic Games with achilles and hamstring injuries.

Pearson was considered the main challenger to world record holder Kendra Harrison heading into the event, and with the American putting in a messy performance it was the Australian who took her second world title in a time of 12.59 seconds, adding to the one she won in Daegu back in 2011.

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. She then had two coaches for brief periods before deciding in August previous year - on the first day of the athletics at the Rio Olympics - to coach herself. "I watched her warm up out there out of the corner of my eye and they were doing things that I thought were a bit different to what she had normally done as part of her warm-up and I thought there were perhaps a few demons going through her head", Hilliard said.

"I remember someone saying "you can be the world champion again" and I didn't feel awkward about that".

"But I knew I could do it".

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

What Will Happen Now To Jaime Lannister On 'Game Of Thrones'?
After the hell-fire of an episode that was The Spoils of War , perhaps even the much loved characters need some low time. With no signs of Jaime and Bronn in the pictures, here we have Daenerys and Tyrion sharing an intense look at something.

Pearson looked tense and focused before the race, not acknowledging the crowd when her name was called, but was hugely impressive quickly overhauling early leader Jamaican champion Megan Simmonds and opening a sizeable lead.

It proved to be an inspired decision. "It's a relief to be world champion".

"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.

"I love this stadium".

Freeman won Olympic gold and silver plus two world titles.

Back in London, and back fit and firing, Pearson flew out of the blocks and held off Dawn Harper-Nelson to take the title. In contrast to the experience of Pearson and Harper-Nelson, this is just Dutkiewicz's second senior medal, though the German will be confident heading into the European Championships in her home nation next year.

Meanwhile, local favourite Mo Farah had to settle for a silver medal as he was beaten to 5000 metres gold by Muktar Edris in his final major championship race.

"I said to myself if it doesn't work out in the first couple of months then we'll have to find someone who can help".
