1:34 pm
lose if you compete in how do you fail i think it's separately an inspiration watching him win every time every time because if i think i'm the opposite i'm more nervous than i compete because i know that he'll he's a competitor and that he was going to win but it was really cool watching him when i was actually laying in bed so it kind of got me fired up a little bit and i thought how am i going to ever fall asleep for my day tomorrow but there was it was really cool to see him win his first world championship gold medal. while in the women's a four hundred metres rushes and i mean i could have a shocker also took wrongs as britain's christina her again stole the show picking botswana's mantri moncho by for thousands of a second to reclaim the crown she won in a soca six years ago and the twenty nine year old britain says she also wants a second olympic gold after enjoying her stay here in moscow. everything's been good it's much better i think it's going to base it's been fed
