Men's Hammer Throw Qualification Round - Flash Interviews

Conor McCULLOUGH (USA)1st in GROUP A - 76.05 Q

It’s going to take a really long throw (to win).

It went well. I came here and did what I needed to do, and so I’m happy and I’m looking forward to the final.

It’s an advantage in the sense that I don’t have to take more throws, but there’s another day and a half until the final, so it’s not too much of the benefit.

In the final, (my goal) is to put everything I have out on the field.

Kevin BOWMAN (CAN) - 15th in GROUP B - 54.51

It went all right, I guess. Nothing spectacular. Just being at World Juniors is a big privilege.

I just didn’t get my act together. I tried to make [my third throw] more smooth - not foul out.

A personal best would have been great, but you can't have everything.

It’s been a really good experience. There are a lot of tough throwers out there, and hopefully I can come back and make a bigger impact.

I can come back in two years, because I'm only 17.
