Demus took second in the women’s 400-meter hurdles and was this close to getting the gold medal, missing out by only .07 seconds. Demus also recorded a personal best time, 57.22, and should be incredibly proud (something tells me her adorable sons will be, too).
With a time of 13.04, Richardson placed second in the men’s 110-meter hurdles and should also be very proud. Another former SEC athlete, Tennessee Vol Aries Merritt, came in first place. This is the first Olympic medal for both USC grads.
Congratulation to Lashinda and Jason for making our country – and Gamecock Nation – proud!
