tion in Oregan (on June

er patterns filled the
week, however. He
thought the race would
have to be run in rain.
"I just tried to stay
focus...stay calm. I was
just trying to stay confi-
dent. I was going up
against the home town
favourite Mike Berry.
When they were
announcing the names,
the crowd started going
fans. I just tried to block
that out, calm myself. All
that was going through
my mind was to stay
focused. I learnt that
from the (London 2012)
Olympics. When Great
Britain was in the four by
four final and they were
right behind us. I learnt
how to stay calm when
I m under a lot of pres-
sure," he said.
