I think, working together more, I don't see why we can't break 38 and go 37 low.
We want to take it worldwide, maybe some Diamond League meets if possible and run against national teams.
I thought we could have broke 38( seconds) if we did not have that headwind, we wanted to play it safe on that backstretch from second to third( runners) because of the wind.
Athletes, we know what we are good at.
I felt good. Getting to the line, I had top speed to finish strong, i'm consistent, under 10 seconds, I'm getting stronger. Now I have a month to train and (to) see a new me at the world championships (in London).
I'll rise to the occasion, when it is time, they are good. They could run with us on the Diamond League.

Tired, tired, tired, i was comfortable but it still doesn't stop me from being tired.
The 100 meters final was a difficult one for me, also emotionally, but now I'm going for 200m. I have two days to go. My race would have been slower but Abdul Hakim Sani Brown pushed me so much. This young guy from Japan is phenomenal.
If you look at Bolt, he did the same thing in 2012, he ran kind of slow in the first round and the semi-finals then he triumphed in the final.

I'm just honored to be able to say I'm on that short list of Americans who have run that fast.
Growing up, to even speak of a 19.3, that's Michael Johnson, you can't even say the words that you look up to that, or look up to him, 19.3 was something unfathomable.
