WinnerAnthonique STRACHAN, BAH Because of my injuries I was not sure about my success. When you are through to the finals you are planning everything step by step and the hungriest one gets it. My team is very supportive and they helped a lot with all time keeping such as warming-up. Moreover, I hope to win in 200 metres as well. I am really happy with my coaching team. I have moved to train in the USA last year and I am really happy about this move.
