PARIS (AP) -- Olympic champion Sally Pearson is looking to rediscover her form for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow by racing in the 100 meters hurdles at the Areva meeting in Paris on Saturday.

The Australian will face 2008 Olympic champion Dawn Harper-Nelson, Lolo Jones, Tiffany Porter and Queen Harrison.

Pearson is only the sixth best performer this year with a time of 12.59 set in February. She pulled out of Diamond League races in Rome and New York last month because of a hamstring strain.

Pascal Martinot-Lagarde is having a breakthrough season. The Frenchman won three Diamond League races this year and is the second best performer this season. He will compete against world champion David Oliver, Jason Richardson and Ryan Wilson.
