Athlete Quotes - Men's High Jump Qualifying
Jesse Williams, Flight 2
"It went awesome today. I took one jump and was done. It was effortless and I am ready to set a personal best and break a record or two."
"I minimized my jumps today so that I would be as strong as possible going into the next round."
Dusty Jonas, Flight 2
On his performance today: "Not great, but I made it to the finals. I had some really good jumps and some really bad jumps. Just fix a few kinks out and I will be ready to go on Saturday. I think everything will be just fine."
On the last couple weeks: "It has been busy. I have been trying to balance a lot of things out and it is hard. I think everything will play out just fine."
On his mindset coming into the trials: "It shouldn't [change], but it did. A few butterflies, but I guess, all in all, I finally got myself together for my third attempt at 2.20 which should never happen, but you do that. I went real reserved on the jump and made sure I got over it. I got a few things to do before Saturday, a few tweaks, but nothing really big. It was all me. There was nothing wrong with my approach as far as length and width."
