Chrys Jones Quotes

Successes as a national champion last year and how that helped him this year: “Last year, I really felt good in terms of my jumps, and it really helped me headed into this season. I truly felt that I recovered from my hamstring injury that I was nagged with this season. So, headed into the fall, I knew that I had to work hard and get the things done I knew I had to do to repeat once again. I really worked hard this winter and then into the spring.”
Thoughts about his winning jump being his third, and how aggressive he was on the final three: “The last three jumps I scooted back on the runway and going for it. I ended up fouling on all three jumps. Two of them were really big, and that’s just the kind of mentality I have. Once I get a good job in, I really start going for it.”
Expectations for next year: “I was talking to coach. I told him if I don’t go 51 feet or above, I will be disappointed. But, I want to come around the 52 or 53 range so I can get close to the Olympic trial marks. That’s my goal.”
