Athlete Quotes - Men's 200m Finals

Shawn Crawford Winner Mens 200M
 
On winning the mens 200M:
Thats the fastest my body has ever moved in its lifetime, so Im happy with that.
 
On his race strategy:
It was pretty controlled. Ive been practicing driving through the first 120 (meters) and letting my body carry me the rest of the way. Ive been pretty doubtful about doing that in my previous races but I decided what do I have to lose? I hate to admit it but it works.
 
On what his win means:
I feel like Im blessed. I still wake up every morning and go to practice. For me to still be able to come out here to these championships and run around with these younger guys, I just feel blessed. At my age, I know a lot of people that I came into the sport with are gone, theyre not in it any more. So I just feel blessed to still be able to beat some younger guys.
