2023 was not only the greatest ever Wanda Diamond League season on the track, it also delivered some memorable moments on the microphone. In part two of the best quotes of the year: shaky hands, a meeting of legends and some "brewskis".
"My hands are a little shaky" - Ackelia Smith
Jamaica's Ackelia Smith admitted she was feeling the nerves when she faced the media alongside fellow rising triple jump star Jayden Hibbert ahead of Herculis EBS Monaco in July. At 21 and 18 respectively, it was a first appearance for both of them at a Diamond League press conference. But in a line-up which included Shericka Jackson, Faith Kipyegon and Sydney McLaughlin, they both looked entirely at home. Hibbert almost claimed a sensational victory the following day, finishing second behind Hugues Fabrice Zango at the Stade Louis II.
