|HBCU Olympic Update - 8/10/12: Brown earns Gold|
Two of the signature relay events had HBCU representation today at the 2012 London Olympics.
This marks Brown’s first career Olympic gold medal. He helped the Bahamas win silver in the same event in 2008 in Beijing. Brown, who placed fourth in the individual 400 meters in 2008 and 2012, also owns gold medals from the 2007 Pan American Games (400 meters and 4x400 relay) and the 2010 World Indoor Championships (400 meters).
Francena McCorory (Hampton) ran the second leg to help Team USA qualify for the finals of the women's 4x400m relay. Lenora Guion-Firmin (Md-Eastern Shore) did not run in the preliminary round but could race for France, whose relay team also qualified for the finals, Saturday afternoon at 3:25pm ET.
