BEST EVER OLYMPIC RESULT FOR HUGHES

Matthew Hughes set a new standard for Canadian steeplechasers. His sixth-place finish in the men’s 3,000-metre steeplechase final is the best ever placing for a Canadian in the event.
 
“I’m content with that … happy too. You look at the way my season started and, mentally and physically, I wasn’t in a great spot,” said Hughes. “Overall, I can’t be disappointed with that.”
 
Teammate John Gay gutted through the wet conditions in Tokyo to finish 15th in the final. “Every time I step up another level, I realize why it’s a step up in the first place. I think that was totally evident tonight,” said Gay. “I know it’s just another notch in the belt and something I can lean on in future years. We’ve got so many championships coming up in the next three years and I’m so grateful to have this opportunity.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“That was pretty tense, with the rain and everything, but I was on a mission today so I was ready to fight, no matter what. I’m just the most prepared I’ve ever been in my life and I’m really just out here to show the world what I can do.” – Anicka Newell
