It was great to beat a great competitor like Justin Gatlin. It's been a great season for me.

There's no one else better to put in the field besides him. He's a great competitor.

I want to make the next World Championships team. You make it once, you always want to make it again. That's just a goal that I have in mind, that I'm going to stay focused and try to make the team. (Then) hopefully be in Beijing.

It was a great race. After finishing fourth at the Worlds I was motivated to do my best.

Now I know how to conserve energy and run for the finals, and don't leave it all in the first three rounds. So it was a learning experience. I feel great. ... I feel very confident now, going into next year.
