彼女は言いました: “It sucked to miss Rio and London but it is extra special to be here at this very weird Olympic Games.
“But for me it wasn’t weird, the whole experience, being in the stadium, there was atmosphere, there was life, this has literally been the highlight of my whole Olympic experience so far so I’m loving it.
“It looked like I didn’t need to do 75, but I’m so thankful. It was a nice confidence boost to get a season’s best, to finally jump over 6.70 今シーズン, and to hit the automatic qualifying because that’s what I came here to do.
“I would have preferred to do it in round one, but it’s nice that I know I can build through, and that’s going to stand me in good stead hopefully for the final.
“There is more to come, there’s things that I’ve been working on and I’m starting to execute as I’m building through the rounds, so hopefully with six rounds in the final it will come – I really want a personal best because it’s always nice to do that at the major championships.”
Sawyers finished 11th in qualifying and believes she will improve on Tuesday.
彼女は言いました: “I’m confident there’s a lot more in the tank. 実を言うと, it can be ugly as long as I am in the final, that’s what counts.
“We know how finals go, anything can happen. I’ll be back in two days’ time ready to attack, because when I am in a final I’m there to try take those top spots.”
