It was nice and smooth and relaxed. I dont want to use too much energy and just try and make it through the rounds.
 
On running against post-collegiate athletes:
No, no intimidation at all. I just have to focus on me and just do what I do.
  
Chris Lawson Winner Mens 200M (Heat 4)
 
On his prelim race:
I got all pushed off for the first 40 real well. I just tried to maintain that. Saw the guys on the inside start to go. Coach is always telling me to wait until you get your sweet spot. I hit it and came out on top.
 
Shawn Crawford Winner Mens 200M (Heat 5)
 
On his prelim race:
I feel tired. It was good conditions, but Im just tired.
 
On the next round:
Right now, I dont feel ready for it, because Im tired, but Ill catch my breath and Ill be cool.
 
Xavier Carter Winner Mens 200M (Heat 6)
 
On his prelim race:
Its the first round so I basically wanted to get out and be comfortable, but not too comfortable. Not run too fast because I  have too more rounds. I strided on through and came in with a reasonable time and came in first in my heat so I feel good.
 
On what he is looking to improve on in the next rounds:
Nothing really, just looking to maintain and do the same things but at a faster pace. Tomorrow Ill get out a little harder and then relax and see where I am and figure out what I need to do at the end of the race.
