Athlete Quotes - Women's Heptathlon - Day 2

Diana Pickler – Winner Women’s Heptathlon
On her being inexperienced this year:
“This is only my fourth heptathlon this year so I definitely felt it a lot in speed and timing. But I’m just looking at the big picture really and trying to focus on what I’m trying to accomplish in the next few months.”
On her strongest event:
“It was definitely the long jump. I didn’t have my best jump ever but I felt really good about it.”
Kalindra McFadden – Fifth Place Women’s Heptathlon
On the 800M and taking fifth overall:
“I definitely tried to get my signature McFadden kick, but this is my fifth heptathlon this year, so instead of feeling like I had some kick like I usually do, there was nothing. I just wanted it to be over soon. I’ll take it for what it is though, PR overall, and fifth in the country, which is pretty cool.”

Sharon Day, second place, women's heptathlon

I knew what I needed (going into the 800). I wasn't running the race to just make it, I was running the best that I could.
