Athlete quotes - Reebok Boston Indoor Games
Morgan Uceny, women's 800m: "The goal was to win. Obviously I wanted to run an OK time, but winning was definitely the priority. It's a perfect starting point. The time wasn't great, but getting the win in the first meet of my first professional season is great."
Jenn Stuczynski, women's pole vault: "In general, I think it was decent. I was a little nervous for this meet, with everything going on with [her new sponsor] Nutrilite, it was more expectations than I've ever had before. I'm pretty satisfied with it. [On her 3 American record attempts] The last one was my best. On my first two I was too tight. I was just trying to hard. I have to look at this as a start. It's the first competition of the year for me. From here I keep building."
Miki Barber, women's 60m: "It wasn't super fast, but I'm happy with it. I have to work on my start and driving longer into the middle of my race."
Meseret Defar, women's 2 mile: "I wasn't running 100 percent. The outdoor (2 mile world record) was very fast."
Kim Smith, women's 2 mile: "I knew I was in good shape. It wasn't a very strong world record and I knew I could run under it. I trick to stick with her, but then she started running 33s (33-second laps)."
