2008 AT&T USA Indoor Track & Field Championships Athlete Quotes - Day 2



Women's weight throw winner, Amber Campbell

"Both were great (winning two Indoor titles back-to back). I can't ever complain about a win. There were some great competitors and it went really well. Everybody brings their "A" game to Nationals."

Women's triple jump winner, Shakeema Welsch

"I've been out of the scene for a while, so this was a sweet way to come back and win my first individual championship. There were some great competitors in the event, but I feel like I had really great execution and came in with a great approach. I was able to do this off some good rest and recovery and being here is a great way for me to tune-up for Beijing. I am very happy to be back on the scene."

Women's 400m winner, Shareese Woods

"I always try to remain focused when I'm in races like this. Before heading into the championship I talked to my parents and they always tell me to ignore the hype, just treat the race like its practice. I think that laid back attitude helped me execute and allowed me to run a personal best."

Women's 3,000 Meters Race Walk, Teresa Vaill

"The pace felt very comfortable. I was just trying to maintain contact and see what I had left. I raced at Millrose, but haven't done a whole lot of other racing this season. My legs felt good. I wasn't going for time today, I just wanted to win here in Boston."

"

Women's 800m winner, Nicole Teter

"I haven't been competing indoor for awhile, so I'm first happy to be back. I was able to sit on the front-runners shoulders for awhile and then opened it up a little in the last 200. It felt really good to get ahead like that. I'm finally feeling 100% again, so this is just the start of me enjoying racing again and having fun."

Women's Pole Vault winner, Jenn Stuczynski

"I felt pretty nervous going into this meet. The expectations were a lot different and a very competitive field. It's always disappointing to not be able to break a record, but it's a huge accomplishment to win a championship and qualify for worlds."

Women's 60m dash winner, Angela Williams

"I was blessed to have such a good start to this race. I felt the need to zoom right off the block. I had to be a top competitor and I proved that. I'm very pleases with myself after coming back from a lot of set-backs. I want running to be fun now, to just take it back to the basics. I was able to do that today. I'm back to where I need to be."

Women's 60m hurdles winner, Lolo Jones

"I felt really good going into the race. I felt that it was a sloppy race overall, but I was still able to pull ahead and win out. I knew what I needed to do and just kept on with my speed at the end of the race. There was a lot of focus on technique instead of time, because as a runner you shouldn't focus on the time."
