Athlete Quotes - Jr. Men's 800m Prelims

Elijah Greer Winner Jr. Mens 800M (Heat 1)
 
On his prelim and the upcoming final:
I felt pretty good, but its so hard to compare prelims to finals. I hope I have more in me tomorrow. I felt a little sluggish, but I think Im exactly where I want to be and I hope tomorrow everything will turn out alright.
 
Joe Abbott Winner Jr. Mens 800M (Heat 2)
 
On his prelim race:
The plan going in was to sit behind the leaders until the 300 mark and then make my move. I won so it worked out alright but it was definitely harder than I thought it would be.
 
Sebastian Sam Winner Jr. Mens 800M (Heat 3)
 
On his semifinal 800M:
I just tried to get out at a regular pace (53). And then improve my position from there. I got out like I wanted, I pushed on that back stretch. The last 150, I pushed coming around that last curve. I looked up at the board and realized I had a large lead, so I was able to shut it down.
