SOUNDBITE 1: Craig Kinsley, (man) javelin thrower for Team USA [English, 19 sec]:
"There's certainly a lot of pressure on us as a team -- I'm a first-time member and it's already been pretty incredible meeting a lot of these guys in the team -- we've got gold medallists, we've got five-time Olympians, it's absolutely unbelievable. We definitely have a lot of pressure as a team but we're going to go out there and perform as well as we can and hopefully we'll meet expectations."

SOUNDBITE 2: Jillian Camarena-Williams (woman), shot-put for Team USA [English, 12 sec]:
"I love big competitions and obviously the Olympics is the ultimate stage for what we do so I'm really excited to get out there and compete and hopefully come back with another medal -- maybe of a different colour."

SOUNDBITE 3: John Nunn, (man) 50 km race walk for Team USA [English, 19 sec]:
"My opinion of the 50km [walking race] is that it is the most gruelling sport or event that the Olympics has -- to go four hours and maintain the form -- your body goes through a roller-coaster wave, not just emotions but physical pain and there's no other event like it on the face of the earth that I've seen."
