The Olympic Champion Sally Pearson is set to return from injury in the Birmingham Diamond League
Multiple World and Olympic champion Sally Pearson will make her big event return at the upcoming IAAF Diamond League in Birmingham on June 30.

With only eight weeks to the World Athletics Championships the Queenslander feared the worse but now she claims to be back in her training rhythm and eyes peak form for Moscow.
"My motivation, which I think is the key to optimal performance in training and competition, is at an all time high," posted Pearson on her blog.
Pearson hopes to repeat World Championship success in Moscow this season, in her favourite, 100 metres hurdles, event.
World discus champion from 2009, Dani Samuels will also make her comeback in Birmingham, after suffering a foot injury.
Following an unsuccessful competition at London Olympics 2012, Samuels stated she had learnt her mistakes.
