Yohan Blake - 22.08.2012 - 11:30-11:45 (English)
Qu : You won 3 medals at the OG - which one is your favourite?
A: The 4x100m relay, because it is a team race and because of the world record.
Qu: Do you prefer to run in the curve or straight?
A: We have an excellent coach who prepares us to run in all situations. I am fine in all of them.
Qu: You tend to run faster in relay as individually. Why?
A: The relay is special, you give everything for the team, so yes, you sometimes run faster.
Qu: You will have some tough competitors next to you tomorrow. How will you react?
A: I concentrate on the race, my technique, not so much who is around me.
Qu: What do you remember from your 100m at the OG?
A: It was a great race! Only one man on the world - the fastest - beat me. Only 4 years ago, I was still in High School and watching the OG on TV, so it was amazing for me to be among these athletes in London.
Qu: What are your season's goals?
A: Keep training and running well, improving, and not get hurt.
Qu: What about times / records?
A: I am a man of surprises, can't tell you now ...
Qu: What kind of music do you listen to?
A: Different types. Aggressive music when on the track (Dr Dre), to push up the adrenaline level.
Qu: What about running again against Usain Bolt?
A: I leave it to my manager to decide. Usian is my training mate and I love to race with and against him.
Qu: What did you do after the OG?
A: I went on one night, I trained, I was sick (headache/flu ... but I am a racing beast and that doesn't hinder me from training) ... and here I am in Lausanne!
Qu: 2011 and 2012 have been exceptional seasons for you. What's next, can you beat Bolt?
A: My priorities are to always better myself and to defend my medals more than to beating Usain Bolt.
Qu: What are your expectations in Lausanne tomorrow?
A: As I said, I am a man of surprises ... you will see.
