I don't know what happened to Merlene as she should have won this one but I felt I had agood shot at gold too!" -S. Jayasinghe (SRI)Silver "I didn't get a good start and once this is perfected I am sure that the next time I will win.

Dissanayake Ministerof Samurdhi, youth & sports of Sri Lanka) -Merlene Ottey (JAM) Bronze "I had many problems this year. I was sick for a long period, so there was no way to prepare the 200 metres.
