Athlete Quotes - Women’s 1500M Prelims

Christin Wurth-Thomas – Winner Women’s 1500M (Heat 1)
 
On her prelim race:
“I started to get boxed in and bumped a little bit today so as soon as that happened I decided to just go for it and pull out ahead. But it’s really not about your time today, it’s all about moving on and qualifying for the next round.”
 
Shannon Rowbury – Winner Women’s 1500M (Heat 2)
 
On her prelim race:
“It felt great. I went out pretty easy. It is pretty windy out on the back stretch. I was trying to keep myself covered. The plan was to stay relaxed and to auto-qualify.”
 
On how she finished:
“I was happy with the last lap – I think it was 61 seconds over the last 400. I felt really good, really smooth.”
 
Jordan Hasay – Women’s 1500M (Heat 2)
 
On her prelim race:
“I’m obviously disappointed, I didn’t do as well as I hoped. But it’s great to be out there. It was slow at the start, and then when they took off, I didn’t have the acceleration.”
 
On her season thus far:
“Since I was sick early on this year, it impeded my training. My fitness isn’t what I would like.”
On competing today:
“It’s an honor to be out there with these women, but it would have been nice to be more fit coming into the race.”
