IAAF Flash Quotes from the meet.

Betty HEIDLER (GER) Hammer Women - Winner
I have been looking forward to this competition because were a lot of good athletes here.
It was necessary to have a good competition here to prepare for the World Championships.
My goal this year is throw over 80.
This is one of my favorite competitions. Everytime I am here I throw over 75. I enjoy coming to the Prefontaine Classic every year.

Garrett HEATH (USA) 1500m Men National - Winner
It was a great race, it's always great to win. The crowd here was awesome so being here to do that in this atmosphere was really cool, especially at a Diamond League event.
Obviously I was trying to go for that A standard so it was a little disappointed not to get that. But it was a little windy out there so I think that kind of affected the route a little bit. You're kind of always watching the clock, which is good and bad. Sometimes you just want to race.
I knew I had to make a long drive for home so I took off with 5 or 600 to go and tried to make a move and push it home. I didn't quite get the A but I'm happy to come away with a win. Hopefully it's a good confidence builder going into USAs in a couple weeks.
31.05.2013 20:09



Phoebe WRIGHT (USA) 800m Women National - Winner
Winning is fun. It's been awhile. It was awesome. When I finished, my official had the nerve to be like, 'Would you take a victory lap?' Duh, Yes I'll take a victory lap. How many victory laps do you get to do? I wish it could last hours.
I had to kind of bide my time until I got to the front, but it worked out.
Made final push with 80 meters to go. 31.05.2013 20:16



Valerie ADAMS (NZL) Shot Put Women - Winner
Today was a classic example of how much people are chasing me. I felt really fit today. I am pretty disappointed with the (mark) but I'm very happy with the win. I actually didn't feel like I won. But I've got to take the positive.
I am still motivated to be the best in the world and I am still motivated to become world champion again. I'm on a good roll with my training so life is good.
I really thought I was beaten. I didn't actually think that I had won. I was very disappointed in myself immediately. But you always have to take the positive. Today was just one of those days.
NEW ZEALAND
It's good for the country, good for the sport.
MOSCOW
Today is just a steppingstone toward Moscow really.
31.05.2013 20:31




Christina OBERGFÖLL (GER) Javelin Women - Winner, repeat champion
I knew that I'm in really good shape. I was just happy that the weather is fine. It just felt good. If it's going easy, then it's a good throw. This throw felt really easy.
I knew it was going to go far. You know when it leaves your hand.
REPEAT PRE CLASSIC CHAMPION
It's just a special place. I love coming here. 31.05.2013 20:39




Kenenisa BEKELE (ETH) 10000m Men - Winner
It's very important. To win this race was very important. I'm happy to win.
TRAINING?
My training was going well. Slowly, it's going well. I'm injury free now. Good training.
NO MO FARAH IN RACE
He don't have to run this race. We have many races.
WHAT POINT IN RACE KNOW TIME WOULD BE OVER 27
We decided to run under 27, but we didn't because ... the pace was slow. It's very tough to push (as) only one person.
HAPPY?
I'm OK. I'm happy that I win the race.
31.05.2013 20:51





Andrew WHEATING (USA) International Mile Men - 5th place. Former UO runner
I ran scared. I made an effort to keep the race going. With 600 to go, I felt the pressure.
31.05.2013 20:58





Amantle MONTSHO (BOT) 400m Women - Winner
This race was very important for me. 01.06.2013 12:58




Sanya RICHARDS-ROSS (USA) 400m Women - 8th place
My foot bothered me the whole way but it wasn't so much my foot, I didn't have my speed. I tried to block it out and get out well.
When I got to the curve I still felt strong but I tried to kick it in but there was no speed there to make up the ground and got a little bit discouraged coming down the final stretch.
The first one is always hard, usually I don't do it in such a big crowd.
This was only my second time in spikes. 01.06.2013 13:03




Tirunesh DIBABA (ETH) 5000m Women - winner
I expected other girls to run much better than their times.
The weather was very hot for me and as I mentioned the pacemakers weren't up to my expectation so I couldn't get the meet record.
01.06.2013 13:22





Zuzana HEJNOVÁ (CZE) 400m Hurdles Women - Winner
It's beginning of the season so it doesn't matter if I'm first or fifth for example, so there's plenty of time before World Championships and everything will change.
It's what I expected but it was very windy so I was happy with the time.
I'm happy to be world leading now. It's the beginning of the season so everything will be changing.
My goal is to be the world champion. I would like to run my best. 01.06.2013 13:24




Ezekiel KEMBOI (KEN)
3000m Steeplechase Men - Second place
The guy pushed me. I've never been pushed before in a race. I'm going to register a complaint.
01.06.2013 13:30




Evan JAGER (USA)
3000m Steeplechase Men - 5th place
The pace was perfect. I felt pretty good through 2K.
I really tied up in that last lap.
I was just a little beat. I struggled to get over that last barrier. But for my opener of the season, I'm very happy.
01.06.2013 13:31





Conseslus KIPRUTO (KEN) 3000m Steeplechase Men - Winner
We were always friends, always have been. 01.06.2013 13:34
Sheila REID (CAN) 1500m Women - 6th place, PR
I just kind of did my own thing, which is go out on my own pace.
PR
It was big. I needed that.
I just really want to concentrate on racing and not chasing times.
I'm pretty happy. 01.06.2013 13:41





Allyson FELIX (USA) 100m Women - 7th place
I felt OK, just trying to work on some speed but clearly it's not really there yet so just trying to put things together for nationals.
Obviously, the start but even my turnover and just my typical run it's not where it needs to be.
I need some more speed work and overall it was our plan to try to be ready for nationals, kind of a different approach this year. Still, sticking to the plan is always kind of frustrating with something like that.
01.06.2013 13:46




Ryan BAILEY (USA) 100m Men
I don't set a time goal, so it's just always go out there and get to the finish line first. We're just getting ready for USAs, that's really all that matters is making that team.
My start was an F. Horrible. I went blank when the gun went off and sat in the blocks a while and everybody got out and I kind of panicked. But I finished real well.
01.06.2013 14:03





Justin GATLIN (USA) 100m Men - winner
My whole race was my start. ... I came up and started lifting toward the end of the race and felt him coming up on me.
I told them the longest part of my race is the victory lap.
Last year I had indoor worlds so I had a sharper start and stronger beginning. This year I'm working on the finish. Last year was start hard and hold on. Going against guys like Blake, Bolt, Tyson, I had to work on my finish.
This year was a more calm race and a strategizing race. I felt like I had a pretty good start. I had a good transition.
The name of the game is just to stay healthy. 01.06.2013 14:12




Kirani JAMES (GRN) 400m Men - 2nd place
It's just another race. You win some, you lose some.
It's the fastest I've ever run at Hayward Field so that's such a positive. Only two guys broke 45 seconds so that was OK. It was a great competitive race, it doesn't change anything. I know I have to execute better. I'm going to go back and look at the tape.
01.06.2013 14:22





Lashawn MERRITT (USA) 400m Men - Winner, SB
There wasn't a lot of wind out here like usual so I took advantage of it.
So I'm pleased about that performance. I kept charging forward and ran through the line.
I wanted to come back and run a clean race from start to finish.
WORLD EXPECTATIONS
To win. I train to win. Go to Moscow and win. In Moscow, I'm coming to run.
Last year was a disappointing year for myself. I wanted to win another Olympic gold medal but it didn't turn out that way. I believe I can go out and win.
01.06.2013 14:28





Mary CAIN (USA)
800m Women - 5th place, National HS record
Just shocked. When I crossed the line, I knew it was going to be close. When they officially announced it, I looked at the crowd and was like, 'Yes!'
I stayed calm. I knew as long as I followed the plan I could do it.
I remember being here for the Trials. It's amazing to be here one year later.
I'm just very determined.
It was still kind of a shock. Beforehand this was probably the most nervous I've been before a race but I handled it really well and didn't let the nerves control me.
I'm just so thrilled, I broke two minutes. Part of me was out there thinking today, no one has ever done this before. I'd be the first person to do it. That's been my goal since eighth grade. I'm going to be that kid, I'm going to do it.
01.06.2013 14:30




Erik KYNARD (USA) High Jump Men
Down to the last man it felt like a World Championships final. Great competition. I guess the best man won today.
I didn't really want to make 2.39, just kidding, no it's definitely an amazing atmosphere. Anytime you can compete at Hayward, as long as the skies are clear, you can take flight. That's what happened today.
Nothing felt different I just have to do the same thing over and over again. 01.06.2013 14:36





Dathan RITZENHEIN (USA) 5000m Men - 9th
It was fun. Second fastest time ever. It's fun to get the intensity back. The marathon will be easy compared to doing this.
LAST 800
I tried to get back on the rail again.
I've been training really well. I feel fit. I feel like I'm still getting better and better.
ON TEAMMATE MO FARAH SECOND PLACE FINISH
He's been really tired. He was really sick. When you get really sick, it takes awhile to come back. But he's so good.
01.06.2013 14:45




Renaud LAVILLENIE (FRA) Pole Vault Men - winner
I'm very happy and the good thing is that's how I opened so now I can be focused on the next steps in preparation for the worlds. I'm very happy because it's my first competition and full approach so that's a really good thing for me and for the pole vault.
The competition was very hard because I wasn't thinking more about four guys jumping over 5.84 but when I saw this competition and everyone jumping very well it was tough because everyone wants to beat me, the Olympic champion. That's the pressure I get to win. Yeah, it was kind of difficult for me.
It was a very good performance. I'm very happy.
Today was a good preparation for Moscow. 01.06.2013 14:48





Silas KIPLAGAT (KEN) Bowerman Mile - Winner, WL
I'm very happy for winning, and for my fast time.
MOSCOW, WIN?
It's my wish to do that.
HAYWARD
It's a nice place to run.
01.06.2013 15:06




Asbel KIPROP (KEN) Bowerman Mile - 2nd place
It was a nice race.
I saw him (Kiplagat) on the screen in the last 80 meters. 01.06.2013 15:07





Mutaz Essa BARSHIM (QAT) High Jump Men - Winner, AR, MR
I'm so excited.
THOUGHT ABOUT GOING FOR 8 FEET?
It's not that easy. I have to take it step by step.
I want the world record, but not yet. I don't want to get injured. 01.06.2013 15:09




Nick SYMMONDS (USA) 800m Men - Third place
I'll do everything I can to win number one this year. I'm as hungry as ever. 01.06.2013 15:11




Lopez LOMONG (USA) Bowerman Mile - PR
I have to work all my way up.
I felt good and I'm very happy for that PR.
Today I just went out there and ran my own race. It came out very well so I'm very happy with that.
The most important thing is to be consistent, be healthy and be excited as well.
I'm very happy with the result today.
Right now, I think I'm strong in the 5,000.
We're going to be focused on speed now, stay injury free and go out there and have fun. 01.06.2013 15:16

Friday night should be an exceptional night of racing. I'm really curious to see what the Bekele brothers will do. We haven't heard much from them since London.

Speaking of the Bekele brothers, they have a sweet private track.
