Former Gator Clement Claims Silver in Beijing
Former Florida sprinter Kerron Clement, in the first Olympic Games of his career, claimed the silver medal in the men's 400-meter hurdles on Monday at National Stadium in Beijing. Clement, who won his heat in both the first round and the semifinals, finished second overall in the finals in a time of 47.98. The United States finished 1-2-3 in the event, marking the first sweep in the men's 400 hurdles since the US accomplished that feat in 1960. Angelo Taylor captured the gold medal in a time of 47.25, while Bershawn Jackson won the bronze in 48.06. The silver medal by Clement increases the medal count of current and former Gators to nine (2 gold, 4 silver, 3 bronze). It marks the first medal claimed by a former Gator track and field athlete in the 2008 Games.
