Casey Malone, winner men's discus

(He took the lead on the fourth throw, what happened)

On my first throw, it felt pretty close but not quite as well as the warm-ups. My second and third throws I forced a little bit. I couldn't get into the rhythm I was looking for. I took a warm-up throw between the prelims and the finals and got a little more of the rhythm I was looking for. That was the throw. I was a little more relaxed. I found a closer throw to what I wanted. I felt it was better, but I wanted a better throw. I wasn't paying too much attention to (the other competitions) because I was still looking for that good throw. The fourth one was close.

(On the win)
It's really special. It's something I wanted for a long time. I've been going to USA Nationals since the 1996 Olympic Trials. I've been to a lot of these. Granted, I was young at the time. But I have gotten to see the type of person that was national champion every years since then. It's quite an honor to finally achieve that.
