Women’s 100m hurdles, final

Brianna Rollins, first place, 12.34
“When I got to the finish line and realized I was the first one to cross, I was so overwhelmed and so excited, and I was finally able to relax and start to prepare myself for the road to Rio.”

On the hurdle team heading to the Olympics:

“We’re the best in the country and the best in the world. I’m so blessed and work hard at what I do, and I’m just going to continue to believe in myself and what I have. I look forward to competing with these ladies, and hopefully all three of us end up on the medal stand.”

Kristi Castlin, second place, 12.50
“I’ve really been working hard. This is just a stepping for us. Our end goal is to come back with some of those medals in Rio. We really have to just use this as practice as a way to execute in order to get to the big show.”

“This is surreal. I can’t even really believe it right now. I’ve always been one of the best in the world, but have had some ups and downs. I know I’m one of the best and I showed that today.”

Keni Harrison, sixth place, 12.62
“I don’t know what happened. I’ll have to watch the film. I’m a loss to explain it, but this stuff happens in the hurdles. We’ve got a great group of girls representing the U.S. in Rio. I’ll go back home and prepare for the Diamond League meet in London.”
