Salazar was pleased Galen got the record but says this is just the beginning. The focus is on World Indoors.

Salazar said, “A fast time – an American record is great. We like to set records, but at the same time the most important thing is competing. The most important thing this year is to make the US World Championship team in Albuquerque which will be tough and then to do well in the Worlds at Poland. We’d rather not get any of these records and do well there.”
