"I’m that athlete who does not worry about times; I take it as it comes. We ran 23.80 and then 23.49 and in the nationals we were hoping to go a little bit down."
"I’ve always said that I’m a power athlete; I can do anything from 100m to a marathon. I have power and speed, which has helped me run a better 800m. From a young age I did the 200m and it has always been easy to do sprints - I was born with sprints....
"I call myself 'supernatural', so I can do anything that I want,"
Caster, if those quotes are true, why can't you simply will yourself to a 1:44 so you can compete in the open 800 or a 19.7 for the open 200?
The good news is she says no matter what happens to her appeal to be able to run the 800, she's sticking with the 200 all season long.
