RRW: Stepping Down In Distance, Jake Wightman Hopes To Show His Range
"I enjoy the 800's a lot more than the fifteens. I can do the 800 and not have the same expectations. ...Coming here to do the 800 is just something I'm actually excited to do. I hope it will be all right. It's an unknown. I've never actually done an 800 championship. I want to show I can be as competitive over eight as fifteen. I think if I were to do a fifteen here I wouldn't have come. So, 800 meters is just a real re-fresh. I'm like, I'm actually looking forward to racing again. ...It's the way it turned out. It's not that I wanted to duck the fifteen, I wanted to try and see if I could compete over 800 because I still want to be considered an 800 meter runner as well, if I can."
