"I am always smiling when I wear this national flag of Burundi. I did all I was supposed to do to defend this title despite the fact it was not easy. I did it for god and for my country. I want to be an inspiration for the youth and children in Burundi.
"I knew Ajee (Wilson) was well prepared and expected her to start like this. I started as I planned, it was hard to win but I felt good to push it in the finish.
"I have very good memories of Great Britain. It was here where I started my international career in London 2012 and I won silver in London last year. With Birmingham, I will always have good memories of this competition."
Ajee Wilson (USA) – Silver
"I felt confident in the race and wanted to secure a good position. I think it was worth trying it.
"For the outdoors, I know what to work on now before the season starts."
Shelayna Oskan-Clarke (GBR) – Bronze
"I'm so happy to get a medal. That's what I came here to do. I wanted to get through to the final and then focus on that. The race was a bit scrappy for me, but I dug deep.
"Normally I don't hear the crowd because I'm in the zone, but you can hear them roaring around all the way which helped me push a little deeper."
