I always love everything.”

Kellyn Taylor, women’s 5,000m bronze medalist On going out strong and leading into the last lap “Right from the gun, it didn’t seem like anybody wanted to take it. To make the race at least somewhat honest, I just decided to take it and I think I was pretty much consistently going 74-75 (seconds) for a good portion of the race. Then I started to crumble a little bit, and then that last lap, ultimately they had the kick and I didn’t.”
