Istanbul 2012 - Flash Interviews - Men's 60m Final

Winner - Justin GATLIN, USA

I came here dominating and I wanted to follow up. I just had to make sure that once the gun sounded, I went out. I won the 2003 World Indoors Championships in Birmingham with exactly the same time and it feels great to be back. I have my confidence back and I dropped a couple of pounds. I got one medal around my neck and I am now going for the next one.

Second - Nesta CARTER, JAM

My start was good, but still have to work on my execution. I am still grateful to God for the medal, the first one for Jamaica here. Justin is a great athlete and so are Trell and Dwaine. This is a good preparation for the outdoor season and I will resume training on Tuesday. I should run my first outdoor race at home.

Third - Dwain CHAMBERS, GBR

6.60s is a fantastic time, a world class time. It is just a great honour to represent my country and I brought home a medal. I am not disappointed about the bronze medal because it is great to get a medal at all. Now I just have to keep my head up and look for a bright future. Today was a great opportunity to compete with the best of the world, I enjoyed today. About the court of arbitration decision whether I can go to the Olympic Games or not: I have no idea what the outcome will be , I just go for the moment. It does bother me, yes! Since two years I feel more welcome in the British team, the athletes support me and I support them. The reason for this is that I changed myself, I grew up.
