Injured Australian Olympic gold medallist eyes Tokyo 2020

Sydney (dpa) - Injured Australian Olympic 100-metre hurdles champion Sally Pearson will not rule out competing in the 2020 Games in Tokyo after missing the Rio Games in August due to a torn hamstring.

"I know what type of athlete I am and what I‘m capable of as an athlete. I don‘t think I‘ve reached my peak yet. I think I‘m capable of a lot more," Pearson told reporters on Thursday.

The 29-year-old, who won gold at London 2012 and silver at Beijing 2008, is for now setting her sights on the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, she said.

"I‘m only 29. Track and field athletes can go on for a bit longer. But at this stage I‘m only looking forward to 2018."

She shattered her wrist while competing in Rome last year.

"This is what I do, as a job, this is who I am. I‘m not just going to give up because I have an injury," Pearson said.

"Clearly her body is telling her it needs a rest from the sustained mental and physical workload needed to train and compete at the highest level," Athletics Australia head coach Craig Hilliard said.

"However, I am confident that with appropriate rehabilitation and rest she can be back as strong as ever."
