 “I must say I’m happy. I feel good. I didn’t come out here today with a time in mind I just wanted to win.  I was very nervous, I know I am the best by time but I have learned never to underestimate the field,” James said after the race.

“I’m a very confident person so I would never doubt myself.  I just went out there to run and I won so I am happy.”
