Flash quotes - Boys' 200m

Gold medallist  Harry AikinesAryeetey (GBR) 20.91

 "I've no idea where I found the energy to win a second time. Yesterday I felt a bit tired. Before Marrakesh, I only had three competitions this season in the 200m, sometimes running 21.5. It's amazing, I can't believe it: two medals! I never thought of it. After my victory in the 100m, I just thought of having a bit of fun".

Silver medallist - Jorge Valcarcel (CUB) 21.08

"During the race I was more relax than usual and this enabled me to break my record. When we came out of the curve, it was very close. I tried to remain in the leader's wake but I began to be tired. It was a good race and I'm satisfied."
