Istanbul 2012 - Flash Interviews - Men's 400m Semi Finals


I am in great shape and I am enjoying this. We will see what happens tomorrow.

Second - Kirani JAMES, GRN

The tactic for the race was to go ahead, take control of the race and stay as relaxed as possible. I'm all prepared for the final.

Demetrius PINDER, BAH

We want to thank God for giving us the strength. We trained well to run two races on the same day. Tomorrow will be another race and we will run for gold.


First of all I would like to give praise to the Lord for giving us the strenght today. My church is the Voices of Faith back home in the Bahamas. Now I want to eat and get a good rest. All my success is coming indoors. Tomorrow, at the final, I will take all by itself. I just have to wait until it happens.


After the first lap, which was very fast, I told myself to slow down a little bit to spare energy for the finish. Maybe, it was an error. I could have dipped below 46 and broken the national record if I had not done so. But I think I surprised many people back home who didn't believe I could make it to the final because I'm so young.
