LONDON, England — Comments from Gavin SMELLIE, Oluseyi SMITH and Justyn WARNER (CAN) who were disqualified after finishing third in the men's 4x100 relay at the Olympic Stadium on Saturday.


On being disqualified:

"I thought we had the medal. I don't know exactly what happened, but I'm really, really devastated and disappointed. I just don't know."

On thinking they had the bronze medal:

"That's what you work for, just to get the medal. To feel like that and then to have that moment taken away is really harsh."

Oluseyi SMITH

On being disqualified:

"I'm sure the team manager is doing something. We will have to wait and find out. I wasn't watching, I was running. On the outside, you shouldn't get disqualified."


On being disqualified:

"I don't know what happened. We put everything into that and then it just showed up on the board. We ran a great race and we did everything. This is unfortunate. It sucks. Everyone dreams about getting a medal and we have just had one taken away. It's not any of our faults and we are proud of what we did. We had the job done."
