Quotes from Athletes

21 May 2014 Lesley Thompson-Willie
It's a special crew, they worked so hard and that was a great race. The USA had to work really hard to beat us. We went to win and didn't do it, but we're enjoying the silver.

We had a good start and a good strong race. You never know what it will be like. Our objective was to win, to get to the final and have a good race. It felt good, felt solid, there is more in us. You can only measure against your competition at the time. You would think based on history that the Americans would be in the final, but we hope to be right there with them. We are not thinking about the USA, we just want to have our best race.

Most countries go through cycles. You need a powerful machine to keep crews in the medals. Canada has a systematic approach now and we're getting to see the results. It's part of my life. I still feel like I'm improving.
