Abstract:

Believe is the inspiring story?of Sally Pearson's journey to the top of her field and best in the world. Sally Pearson was still in primary school when her athletic ability was first noticed. At only 14 she won the Australian under-20 100m title. From there she moved from strength to strength, winning gold in the World Youth Championships, gold at the Commonwealth Games and gold at the World Championships, and breaking a swag of records. In 2011, along with Usain Bolt, she was awarded Athlete of the Year by the International Association of Athletics Federations. She is the first Australian ever to receive the award. In the lead-up to the London Olympics, Sally won 32 of her 34 races. In the Olympic race, Sally clocked 12.35 seconds to break the Olympic record and win gold, beating the best in the world. Sally won gold again at the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Throughout her remarkable career, Sally Pearson has shown that competitiveness and passion are hardwired into her very being. With new races to win and new records to break, she is still at the top, with the best in the world.
