Women's 200m final - Flash Interviews


I’m feeling very good. I mean, I’m just so happy I just don’t know what to say. Win, that’s what I came to do. And we have the relay tomorrow, so we’re hoping for another gold medal in that.

I was debating whether I should run [the relay] or not because I had the 200, but I wanted to do it for my team. And we have finals tomorrow.

I had great competition, but I knew I had to run my race and just be patient and not stress near the end.

This is my last race of the season, so I’m happy to go out with a gold medal.

I’ve been running forever, since I was small, and I’m good at it, so my heart’s in it. God gave me this talent.

Jodie WILLIAMS (GBR) - SILVER - 23.19

I had 12 hours sleep last night because I was absolutely shattered after the 100 metres. Six races in four days is an awful lot.

Not having enough sleep the night before last wasn’t good.

I think the expectation was way too much so I did all I could.

Jamile SAMUEL (NED)  BRONZE -  23.27

I just wanted to run a little bit faster but this is cool too because I never thought I would win two medals here so that is great.

It was a great competition.  The other women really pushed me and I’m happy with the bronze.
