Quotes from Athletes

21 May 2014 David CALDER
We got the job done. We're in the final. It wasn't necessarily our best performance, but we certainly couldn't be racing for a medal if we didn't come in the top three today. So, we're through and now we have to focus on what it takes for us to get into the medals. Scott and I have an incredible rhythm. With the weight of the headwind slowing the race down a bit, we don't feel like we hit that invincible rhythm, but it was good enough to get us through. We saw Italy take a good swat at us, but when Scott and I are on, you'll see a difference in the way the boat runs and the way it looks in the water. As we say, we are nowhere near the panic button.

We're using all our experience possible to knock off the undefeated pair of New Zealand. But at the same time, we're looking at everybody and expecting a lot of everybody. The more we race them, the better. It's less of a chess game. It's more 'get out fast and get going'.
