Athlete Quotes - Women's Pole Vault
Jennifer Stuczynski – Winner Women’s Pole Vault
On winning the pole vault:
“It was kind of a gutsy event. If it was Thursday, Friday or Saturday I would
have pulled out. I have so many nagging injuries going on. Today I was able to
compete. I am glad it worked out. Now it’s time to move on and get healthy.”
On the windy conditions:
“It was just me being able to come down the runway. The wind had no play in it
at all. Everything was clicking.”
Stacy Dragila, third place, women's pole vault
Today, everything came together and I made the team. I'm not retiring yet. I
still have the summer to do. Then I am retiring. I really wanted to make the
team. I haven't made a team since 2005. I feel great. I think I can be a
competitor. I have some experience under my belt. We are taking a great team.
Chelsea (Johnson) is ready to jump well. Jen (Stuczynski) is ready. It's fun to
be on a great team like this.
