Flash interview men 800 metres final
Wilson Kipketer (DEN) Gold
"It wasn't my pre race plan to run from the gun to the tape in the lead.
I decided to do it that way just before the final because I felt it was right.
They wanted to push me but they forgot, I am pushing myself. 1,500? No thanks, I am an 800m runner".
-Norberto Tellez (CUB)
"I prepared myself perfectly in Havana.
Now I dedicate my medal to my coach, my family and all of the people of Cuba".
-Kenah Rich (USA) Bronze
"I had been planning to execute this game plan all week and it worked right down to the last step.
I was confident I had a one in seven chance for one of the remaining medals, as Kipketer is an a world of his own.
The rest of us were very evenly matched".
