UPDATE [2:55pm]: Team USA sent over some quotes from U.S. Olympic Sprint Coach Shaun Craven on Hornsby's performance Friday: "His heat was a little bit shaky. He needed to make the B Final, so he just tried to do the best he could. He made the B Final, so that's the key thing for us right now," he said. "He's OK that he's in the B Final.
