" [The US Relay Champs is a long way away, it] a long time to keep your focus. It's hard but that's what we work on and what we train for all year long."

"It's absolutely necessary to maintain it. If you let it fall just one day on a day like yesterday or a day like today it's all over. On a day like that you can lose more than 30 minutes."

"I know that the others are gunning for...[relay]...wins, for the overall victory and there are guys with no other ambition but to cause trouble. Knowing that keeps me focused."
