Another Athlete From Houston, Kerron Clement, Brings Home Gold!

Thursday afternoon at Olympic Stadium, Kerron Clement, 30, the former La Porte High School standout who now lives in Florida, draped the flag around his shoulders as he celebrated victory in the men’s 400-meter hurdles. Clement fulfilled his race plan to perfection, taking the lead and holding off Boniface Mucheru Tumuti of Kenya in the final strides to win the race in 47.73 seconds to Tumuti’s 47.78. Yasmani Copello of Turkey won the bronze in 47.92 seconds. He also won a relay gold medal and a silver in the 400 in Beijing in 2008.
