''The Olympic trials prepared us for any kind of weather. I mean, we had pretty much four seasons in Eugene, (Ore.), so bring it on. If it wants to rain, if it wants to be windy, throw a tornado out there, USA is going to run and we're going to run fast every time.'' - U.S. runner DeeDee Trotter after winning a 400-meter qualifier in the rain at Olympic Stadium on Friday.
