Athletics: Kiwi sprint sensation Zoe Hobbs out to continue record-breaking momentum in Sydney

Nearly a week after clocking a career best time in the 100m, Kiwi sprinter Zoe Hobbs is determined to prove her latest feat was no fluke.

On Friday, Hobbs will depart for her next event in Sydney, where she'll continue to press her claims for the Paris Olympics.

The 25-year old broke the elusive 11s barrier in Wellington last week, flying to the line with a time of 10.89s in the final.

Unfortunately for Hobbs, strong winds meant her time didn't count - not that she's overly concerned.

"To finally do that is wild,but I just need to do it legally now and not with the wind behind me," Hobbs told Newshub.

"I would take a sub 11s in any conditions, it doesn't matter what wind."

It was the fastest women's 100m time ever recorded in New Zealand - made even more remarkable by the fact it came during Hobbs' first competition of the season since recovering from a hamstring injury.

"I never really thought I could do it until last year," she admitted. "I was like' oh, edging closer' and that's when I started to believe that I was potentially there."

The speedster has continued to rewrite the history books in the capital, breaking her own New Zealand and Oceania record with a time of 11.07s.

All eyes in Sydney this weekend will be on the Kiwi, who has already secured her spot at the World Championships in Oregon in August.

"I'm hoping to back it up, that's part of the plan," she added. 

"Whatever happens this weekend is just a bonus. I've done the qualifying time I needed to so it's just a cherry on top if I do well over there."

Next year's Olympics remains the ultimate goal. Despite qualifying for Tokyo, Hobbs wasn't picked because of New Zealand's tough selection criteria, which specifies only sending athletes it believes are capable of a top-16 finish.

"The qualifying window opens in July, so it's a big priority for me to go over to Europe and run that time."
