Team GB high jumper Robert Grabarz looks forward to getting underway in the London Games, but says the recent success of his team is no added motivation.
SOUNDBITE: (English) Robbie Grabarz (Q: How does it feel to be competing at the Games in London?) "It's fantastic to be honest. It just happens to be at the start of my career that the Games are in London so I'm not going to complain about that."
SOUNDBITE: (English) Robbie Grabarz (Q: What do you expect the atmosphere to be like inside the stadium?) "The atmosphere will be phenomenal. It's going to be really loud but I'll be concentrating on what I'm doing so I probably won't hear much of it to be honest."
SOUNDBITE: (English) Robbie Grabarz (Q: Team GB have won a lot of medals over the last 48 hours. Is that extra motivation for you?) "It's nice to know that everyone is doing well but I'm the only one who can inspire and motivate me, so it doesn't really matter. If you're waiting for others to motivate you, what happens if you're first up?"
SOUNDBITE: (English) Robbie Grabarz (Q: You had a difficult time in 2011 but have been jumping well of late. Do you think you're peaking just in time for the Games?) "Yes it's been my plan all year to jump high at the Games and that's the important thing."
