Athlete Quotes - Women's 800m Semi-Final

Geena Gall – Winner Women’s 800M Semifinal (Heat 1)

On her semifinal race:
“I felt alright. I had a good race. It was a little bumpy going around some of the girls. I held my composure and just finished strong the last 50 meters.”
 
On goals for the final:
“I definitely want to make the world team. I’ve never made a world team – always finishing fifth or sixth place. I know I can do it. The conditions have to be right, the mind has to be right. My training and everything else is going great. I am excited for the final.”
 
Maggie Vessey – Winner Women’s 800M Semifinal (Heat 2)
 
On her semifinal race:
“I got kind of nervous because I was on the inside and I wasn’t as far back as I usually am. Just having to deal with the mechanics of racing with other people. It took me a little bit out of my comfort zone. I had to pull back and go around the field with about 350 to go, which was not ideal.”
 
On goals for the upcoming 800M final:
“Get over the nerves. Get to the starting blocks in the best state as I possibly can.”
