Olympic silver medalist Bryshon Nellum will carry the U.S. flag at Sunday's closing ceremony of the London Olympics.
Nellum was told by doctors that he might never be an elite athlete again after he was shot in the legs while leaving a restaurant near the campus of Southern California in 2008. Four years later, he's an Olympic medalist.
Nellum was part of the men's 4x.....
The serenity to accept the things I cannot change, The courage to change the things I can, And the wisdom to know the difference.
I'm ALMOST happier for his mom that she gets to witness this glorious day in person. Great story.
Really happy for this young guy... And what a great testament to the power of perseverance in the face of great odds.
Awesome news for Bryshon and his family. Great courage....
I haven't noticed him getting much pub on the TV. It's a great story and I hope NBC mentions USC in the closing ceremony.
Don't let Mora find out about this.
No need to worry he doesn't read or watch the news
Watch out for him when he learns to read and can afford a TV. Too bad neither of those will occur while coaching at UCLA.
On last night's coverage, NBC did a little 5 min segment on him. It was pretty well done. Dude is a fighter. Im not sure how many people would bounce back from something like that. As a Trojan, im a bit biased, but to me, Bryshon is the perfect example of what the olympics and being a Trojan are all about. Im so happy he's won a medal, and that he'll be carrying our flag to close-out the games.
Fight On Bryshon! You're an inspiration to us all!
"You can't sanction heart and you can't sanction the will to win." -Matt Barkley-
Fight On, Bryshon!
