Sheena Tosta, Heat 1

"I was a little fatigued from the heat, but overall my body feels good. I was happy with the race."

"I've been trying to work on a different strategy for saving myself towards the end of the season for the Olympics. In the past years I have kind of been peaking at Nationals. This year I am trying something a little different. It's all coming together great."

Queen Harrison, Heat 1

"I had to focus on my race solely. I'm just getting back into it after a hamstring injury about two weeks ago."

"I feel like I have the ability to make the team as much as anyone else. I just have to race like I have been training all year."

Christine Spence, Heat 2

"To be honest, I expected to make the final. But I didn't expect to run such a poorly executed race. I have to not think about the hurdles so much, and just focus on getting in my rhythm. If I do that, I'll be in Beijing. And I bet everything I have in my bank account (that I will). I don't have that much in there, but I'll put it out there."

Tiffany Ross-Williams, Heat 2

"It felt really good and I got out strong. I was just trying to make sure that I didn't get too far out of the race and relax."

"I always want to win. I missed out on the 2004 Olympics, so I am doing this for my family. It has always been my grandparents goal for me to make to the Olympic team."
