Former Norfolk State sprinter Chris Brown helped the Bahamas 4x400 meter relay team win the gold medal in the event in a national-record time on Friday evening.

The Bahamas finished in 2 minutes, 56.72 seconds. The United States took silver in 2:57.05 and Trinidad and Tobago won bronze in 2:59.40.

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).  (Click here for the entire article)
