Flash quote 3 – IAAF World Junior Championships

David Omoregie – 110m hurdles bronze medallist – 13.35 (0.5m/s)

This is big. I’ve come a long way since last year. The target for this year has always been to medal here, I could have run a bit better but that’s the way it goes and I can’t do anything about that now.

It wasn’t a good race technically but to come away with a medal I’m still happy with that and I don’t think I can take any negative away from this because I’ve medalled. I’ve just got to take away as many positives as I can to help me in my senior career.

Dina (Asher-Smith) and Morgan (Lake) definitely inspired me. I’m so happy for those girls and it’s been on my mind since yesterday to try and replicate what they did, unfortunately I didn’t but I’m coming away with a medal so I can’t complain.

I was in a very quick race today. I felt like I was with them for a bit but I was hitting hurdles and stuff. I can’t complain, it wasn’t a fast time for me but it’s a medal.
