Christophe LEMAITRE (FRA) 200 M - 20h30

« There is not so much to improve to run faster. I just need more work. I need more speed. I had a strong training on 200 m, i worked hard on endurance and long distance. But I had to put my training for 100 m on hold since the French indoor championship, I was injured and I needed more time than expected to recover. But I had some good training sessions on speed since my race in Geneva, so I hope to be able to show it on Saturday evening. I will also run on 100 m in race B, where I hope to do the minima for the European championship. »

« Il n'y as pas grand-chose à améliorer pour aller plus vite. Il me faut seulement du travail. Ma préparation a été bonne pour le 200 m. J'ai travaillé assez long. Il me manque juste de la vitesse. Mais les séances de réglages ont été bonnes depuis ma course à Genève. J'espère pouvoir le montrer samedi soir à Paris. J'ai beaucoup laissé de côté ma préparation sur 100 m depuis les championnats de France en salle, à cause de pépins physiques qui ont duré. Je vais aussi courir le 100 m B pour tenter de réussir les minima pour les championnats d'Europe. »
