Gold MedallistRashid RAMZI, BRN
"I learned from my mistakes in Athens. These good results are simply because of that fantastic preparation I have had for these championships."

"I knew it was going to be decided in the final straight, and I was ready for that, and made my plans according to that."

Silver Medallist - Yuriy BORZAKOVSKIY, RUS
"I lost the race at the 600m mark. I was closed in behind BAALA and lost my rhythm."

Bronze Medallist - William YIAMPOY, KEN
"I feel good, this is the first time I won a medal at the World Championships. This is a wonderful time."

"The race was slow in the first lap. I would have prefered a faster race, then there would not have been so many changes in the speed and would not have been blocking each other constantly. Now everybody was waiting for someone to kick first."
