Quote Of The Day
“I was panicking. I’ve never been so emotionally attached to another runner as I was at that moment. I could see the clock going :45, :46, :47 and I was screaming at him. Carlos is one of my good mates. To help him have a chance to go to the Olympics, I mean, it’s less pressure pacing but at the same time it’s more because you feel responsible getting him to where he wants to go. I couldn’t be happier for him.”
