Kurt Roberts: "Great to win here in Shanghai! The ring was bit slippery, so I changed my left shoe to a faster one. During the competition I was thinking about my little daughter, she is 7 months old. I did this for my little baby girl! It is nice to have this shape already this early i nthe season. At the olympics I think I will be in 22m shape. For now I am focussing on the trials."
Tom Walsh:"It was a good start for me in my first Diamond League of the season. I had a good first throw, but then the competition went a little flat in the middle. I was pleased to bounce back with a 21m throw in my final attempt. Overall, I'm pleased to throw over 21m for my first competition of the season."
Joe Kovacs: "It was a little rough out there. We were hoping to put in some big throws today, but it wasn't to be. The timing was a little off today, but it is still early in the season and hopefully I will be a little more ready for the next Diamond League meeting in Prefontaine."
