"I was excited and elated when I saw the time and my first thought when I saw it was 'please be legal'.
"I'm overwhelmed a little bit.
"I wish Richard [Browne] could have been here as the conditions were amazing.
"He would have pushed me and I would have pushed him and maybe it would have been even faster.
"Everything considered I was really happy with how I ran."
