Junior Men’s Javelin

 

“How does it feel to beat your competition by such a large margin?” – Camelio:

“Really I’m not here to compete against other people.  I like to compete against myself.  However the marks landed that’s just how it is.  It was really just competing against myself and doing better than what I normally do or staying consistent with what I’ve done.” – Thompson

 

“At what point did you know you were going to win?” – Camelio:

“I didn’t know until after everybody got done throwing; until I passed the last one.  Normally I pass on one by one.  I don’t want to pass all of them and then somebody beats me or two people or whatever.  It’s not over till it’s over.” – Thompson

 

“What was going through your head when you threw that winning javelin?” – Camelio:

“It felt good.  I was really thinking about finally securing a spot and looking more forward to seniors.” – Thompson
