USC finally won a gold medal at the Olympics.
The Trojans’ streak of winning gold at every Olympics since 1912 continued today as sprinter Andre De Grasse won the 200 meters in Tokyo, his first gold of his career.
“I’ve been waiting for this moment, I’ve been training hard for this moment,” De Grasse said. “I went back after the 100 meters and I was a little bit disappointed in myself, that I could have done better. I said, ‘I gotta go and get this 200, I gotta go and get it’.
“I knew the Americans were going to push me and they were going to take me to a personal best. It’s been five years since I had a personal best, so it was just good to get that finally out the way.”https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
