“The first race was very smooth and I was very happy with what I did. In the final, I got a bad start and it all went downhill from there. It is hard work and dedication. I just need to keep pushing myself. I feel pretty good. If I continue to work on my start, it will all be good.

“I really love this crowd and I enjoy competing here. One of my most favourite moments was the 200m in London in 2012.”
