Quote Of The Day
“Every time I come to the Penn Relays I never ran the anchor leg. Due to injuries in the past, I haven’t done it as much in the Relays. However, I have done it in the Olympics. So being able to run the anchor leg today and pulling the win out for my team, was something special. It was definitely a close race in the end, but I knew right away that I won the race for team USA. I think the crowd knew also. For a race to come down to the wire the way this did, is what you live for as an athlete. You prepare for moments like this. A win like this is huge for us. It brought us closer together as a team, as well as show what we are capable of doing. What we did out there today, is only half of what we will be doing in the upcoming Olympics. It’s definitely going to be something great to see.”
