One of the classiest athletes of all times, has announced the end of her career. Sally Pearson has won two World outdoor titles in he career, in Daegu in 2011 and London in 2017. The 2012 Olympic title was also won by Sally Pearson. Sally Pearson has reached that point in her career when she knew the price was too much.

Sally Pearson possesses an amazing spirit and focus. Her win in 2017 world championships was one of my favorites, and the 2012 Olympics was just special!
