Sprinter credits hustle for victory

Moments after winning the 100-meters Sunday at the Volvo Championships in Paris, sprinter Malcolm Duncan of Jamaica credited his victory to hustle and never letting up.“I went all out for the entire 100 meters,” he said. “Some guys lets up and coast and jog a little bit or even walk. Not me. I give it my all for 9.5 seconds.”Duncan credits his success new a new concentration and dedication. "I used to get easily distracted,” he said. “I would give my best for four seconds, maybe five. But then I’d spot something in the stands and wander off. But not anymore. And that’s what has allowed me to separate myself from the pack. Not everyone is willing to hustle for as long as 10 consecutive seconds. It's about who has the biggest heart. And also who is naturally really, really fast.”
