Vernon Norwood Olympic bronze

Tokyo, Japan – Vernon Norwood anchored the Team USA mixed 4×400 meter relay to bronze on Saturday morning at Olympic Stadium. Team USA took third with a time of 3:10.22.

Norwood, who didn’t run in the prelims, was called on to compete in the finals for Team USA. He was in fourth when he received the baton for the final leg and moved Team USA up to a bronze medal. The American squad went with an order of Trevor Stewart (male), Kendall Ellis (female), Kaylin Whitney (female), and Norwood (male).
