“Right now I feel like I’m going in the wrong direction. I’ve had an up and down season. The event as a whole has been up and down for me. I felt okay, but technically I was mediocre. In a technical event, you can’t be mediocre.

“It doesn’t matter how good your body feels. It’s just like the hurdles, you hit one, you hit two it doesn’t matter. Today I felt strong, fit, fast.

“I was having trouble figuring out the runway a little bit. But when you’re mediocre technically in a technical event, you won’t have the finish that you came to have.”
