The following are quotes from the 2007 Nike Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, Ore.

Women's 400 Meter Hurdles

Melanie Walker (Jamaica)

"It was great. It's a good feeling right now to know I have the fastest time in the world."

"I'll just continue to work hard, get my legs down and get my time to around 53."

Women's Javelin

Barbora Spotakova (Czech Republic)

"I had some problems with the approach because it's usually different than in Europe. I'm glad I changed the approach and made it shorter.

Usually my first throw is my best, but today it was different. I've never thrown from such a short approach."

"I had to fight because of Kim Kreiner, but I'm happy with my result."

"The throw is one meter below my personal best."

Women's 100 Meter Hurdles

Michelle Perry (USA)

" The race felt good. The blocks were a bit different, but I have to get used to it for nationals.

"I wasn't as strong at the end and the first three hurdles, but the middle was good."

"I was off for two weeks, but I came back strong and am overjoyed about the win."

"The US Championship shouldn't be as difficult."

"I'm happy to be healthy and doing well."

Women's 100 Meters

Torri Edwards (USA)

"I feel pretty good about my performance considering the conditions."

"I want to take the first position in the 100 and do well in the 200."

"I felt really good at my first race this season. To open with 10.90 was great."

"I'm taking it one step at a time. I want to make the team and go to worlds."

Women's 400 Meters

Sanya Richards (USA)

"I'm happy the first is out of the way."

"My training is right where it needs to be."

"I love to be the best at what I do."

"I feel so comfortable because I have been running for so long."

"I'm going to double at nationals to prepare for the Olympics."

Women's 800 Meters

Maria Mutola (Mozambique)

"I enjoyed running and winning."

"I think I ran a perfect race today."

"Every year I just want to come back and start my season at the Prefontaine Classic.

"Each Prefontaine means more to me, and I'd like to come back next year and win again."

"I'm retiring next year, but I'll keep running just for fun."
