“We need to put it together a bit better and execute better,” said Jasmin Glaesser. “I was really surprised to see Great Britain set a new world record, but this is the Olympics, and everyone came here flying. Everyone is bringing their A game, that’s what we’re seeing out there. I think we can go faster. We didn’t get the pacing we wanted to today.”
