Gold MedallistYuliya PECHONKINA RUS
"This feels great. My tactic was to start easy and finish strong."
"I have been waiting for this gold medal for two years now. I do not think it has quite sunk in yet. I am just very excited. I did not run a perfect race, there were some technical aspects I could have done better, and I feel like there is still a lot left in me."
"At the same time I ran my best time for the season just at the right time, which is comforting to know."
Silver Medallist - Lashinda DEMUS USA
"I am satisfied but not happy. I ran a PB, but this time it was enough for a silver. Silver isn't gold, but it is the best I've had so far. In a way it's good I got only a silver. It makes me work harder. As I keep improving I will eventually get what I want."
"It was really difficult to run on lane 8. I couldn't see the others. If I were on any other lane I could have seen someone else, just anybody. It would have been easier, I could have run smarter."
"I think I started my kick a little too early, I started it at the sixth hurdle. I might have had more to give at the finish."
Bronze Medallist - Sandra GLOVER USA
"I cannot be disappointed, I ran my personal best and a PB is allways a PB. I still think that there is lot more to come."
"A lot of people say that I'm too old, but I still believe that I can improve my time. I maybe old, my legs are tired but I'm still kicking butt."
