Stephanie Brown Trafton – Winner Women’s Discus

On the last throw:
It wasn't a tough throw. It was just a throw to get the crowd into it. I've been a lot better this year. I've allowed the crowd to participate a little bit, because they are the reason that we are here. If the crowd wasn't there, there would be no excitement, especially in Eugene where the crowd knows a little bit about track and field. I'm really appreciative to the crowd here. I'm really excited to go to Berlin. Hopefully I throw far for another medal.

On her goal:
“My goal is to throw 210 on a bad day every single time. If I can do that on a bad day, I can medal on a good day. If I don’t feel quite right or the wind is strong like today, it doesn’t matter, if anything is making it a bad day I still want to throw 210.”
 
On her motivation:
“You know (laughs), my favorite food is corn dogs and my family said I wasn’t allowed to eat them until I won the US Championship. So today I was picturing corn dogs at 210 and just trying to knock them down. Some people win a title and say they’re going to Disneyland – I’m going to a hot dog stand.”
