Quote Of The Day
“It was a s—show. It was dangerous. … No one was pumped up and wanting to run. Everyone was looking at each other and shaking their head – it was like we were going into a war. … When we were stood on the start-line, we were there sweating and we had to wait for Seb Coe to come down on this golf buggy. It was ridiculous. He should take a bit more responsibility about it and say they were sorry it didn’t work out. They just seemed to suggest it went as well as it could, but there were no supporters and so many athletes had aimed for the race all year and had to drop out. You only get to run two marathons a year so if I’d chosen to race in Berlin or Chicago it would have been a chance to run a fast time and you get paid to run in those races. I could have made money, got my name out there and boosted sponsorship. Now I’m left thinking: ‘Why did I make that decision?’ It’s put a dampener on my year.”
