Question: Are You Aware Of The Other...

QUESTION: Are you aware of the other competitors in a race as short as 55 metres, or do you just run as fast as you can? SUDHAHOTA: I’m aware of them being there, but I’m just trying to go as fast as I can. Those races are so short that you can’t make any mistakes. You have to be aware of the competition so that, if you’re behind, you can make quick adjustments. In the 100 I wouldn’t try to make adjustments; I’d just run my own race. But if I’m behind in the 55 metres, I may do this or that because I don’t have much time to waste.
