COMMENTATOR: We go live now to the Sawing arena where Brit has just won gold. Sawing is a new Olympic event and is the only event where you get marked down for crossing the line. Brit, congratulations!
BRIT: Thanks John.
COMMENTATOR: You were up against Big Joe, a formidable opponent. Was there any doubt in your mind that you were going to win?
BRIT: Well John, nothing is ever certain in sawing. We’ve met a couple of times before and he’s got the better of me, but I had a chat with my coach and worked out what I needed to do today and I came out and delivered.
COMMENTATOR: Your supporters have come out in their hundreds. How much were you aware of the noise around you?
BRIT: Yeah the fans were fantastic John, I couldn’t have asked for more really. The noise was deafening as I sharpened the last few teeth. I still find it incredible that people will pay good money to watch me saw.
COMMENTATOR: What does it mean to you to win gold today?
BRIT: Well John it’s what I’ve trained for. The early mornings, the diet, it’s all been leading to this moment and to finally win gold on my home turf, well, it can’t get any better than this can it?
COMMENTATOR: It’s a terrific win Brit. Will we see you in Rio?
BRIT: Well first I’m going to relax for a few days John and enjoy the rest of the games. Sawing is a tough event and it takes a lot out of you, but there’s only one thing better than winning a gold medal and that’s winning two, so you never know.
COMMENTATOR: Great to talk to you Brit and once again, congratulations on gold. Let’s just re-live that winning cut again…
