    Lolo Jones, Asics (Winner – Women’s 100m Hurdles, 12.88, w:1.8)
    “I had a ‘dirty’ recovery after a tough start. I gritted my teeth toward the end for the win. It’s just about getting my rhythm before the Trials. Once you get that pattern and rhythm you can maintain it.”

    Dominique Arnold, Nike (Winner – Men’s 110m Hurdles, 132.26w, w:2.5)
    “I wanted to run a little faster, but this is my fastest opener so I can’t complain. This is only my fifth week of hurdling practice and my first race so I’m happy with the time. I’m just happy to finish injury-free. You can practice and practice and still not have the same feeling, so I just wanted to get through this.”

    Gary Reed, Nike (Canada) (Winner – Men’s 800m, 1:46.64)
    “It was my first race with a really big field, so I got mixed up a little bit early. I’m really happy to get the win today. On a day like today, I wasn’t concerned about my time. I wanted to place in the top two so I’m really happy with that.”

    Nick Symmonds, Oregon Track Club (3rd – Men’s 800m, 3rd, 1:47.37)
    “It was an amazing field. I didn’t finish quite as high as I would have liked, and I didn’t have as good of time as I would have liked, but I’m pretty happy with it. It’s a good prep for the Prefontaine [Classic]. There were a lot of people out there – I’ll take it.”

    Carmelita Jeter, South Bay Track Club (Winner – Women’s 100m, 11.29, w:1.5)
    “My start was a little shaky. I thought the starter would call it back. I had to play catch-up a bit. … I was focused on me. I noticed that a few people got good starts and I knew I just had to go get them. It’s just about being consistent and focusing on the race. The goal is to make the World Championships team.”

    Jesse Williams, Nike (Winner – High Jump, 7-4 1/4, 2.24m)
    “I’m really looking forward to the Pre[fontaine Classic]. I wasn’t expecting anything huge today, but I was happy with it. … It’s a great track town. I’m really looking forward to coming back.”

    Stacy Dragila, Nike (Winner – Pole Vault, 14-9, 4.50m)
    “I’m about 70 percent right now physically, but I’m making some big strides now. Today was the first day with a full run so that was good. From here, I know that the bigger poles and higher grips (her hand position on the pole) will come. I know that I need to be more aggressive on the runway, because when you can grip high, you jump high.  … (About the depth of top U.S. talent on the international scene) – It’s great to be able to share the pressure with other people and it makes our team stronger at the World Championships. You can’t control how others perform, only how you do. Right now I’m most concerned about trying to get as healthy as I can, and will let the marks happen on their own. … (Physical health?) I’ve had some compensation problems with my left leg in the past, and now it’s switched to my right leg, and it bothers me maybe the most in my Achilles at this point. … I’m training again at Idaho State with my old coach Dave Nielsen, and have been back there for 1 1/2 years. I had Achilles surgery last June, and after I came back from that, I had to deal with some of the limited training issues because of the weather in Pocatello.”

    Maria Mutola, Nike (Mozambique) (Winner – 800m, 1:58.79)
    “This was a fast time for a first meet of the season. The pacer did a good job of bringing us through for 58 seconds the first 400m. … I’m looking forward to the Prefontaine Classic, and doing better. That meet will be special because I’ll have a chance to defend another title. … I agreed to run here because I knew it would be a good meet. I probably wouldn’t have run this fast in an opener if I was somewhere else. This crowd always pulls you along. … I’m training in South Africa still, and like to compete back in the U.S. once a year if I can. This year I’m in a little better shape at this point since I ran indoors. … (Looking ahead), I’m looking forward to trying to get another medal at the World Championships and Olympics the next two years then retiring. … (As far as other international favorites to watch at the World Champs) It’s a little early to know who the favorites will be, especially since there always seems to be someone new every year. We’ll know better at the end of June. … I was hoping to run a 1500m this year, but haven’t had a chance yet, so I’m not sure how or if it will work out.”

    Nicole Teter, Oregon Track Club (2nd Place – 800m (1:59.91)
    “This crowd is great to have behind you no matter if the stadium’s completely full – they cheer you every step and they’re so knowledgeable. … This is another in a series of meets that I’ve been able to build on towards USA’s, and each one keeps getting better. I’m looking forward next to the Pre Meet and hope I can compete like I did today. … I knew we were running fast, and wasn’t worried about getting a U.S. leader.”
