2012 London Olympics: Sanya Richards-Ross Wins Gold In Women's 400m

Sanya Richards-Ross did her part in representing Team USA at the 2012 Olympics, taking home the gold medal in a very exciting women's 400m final.

Richards-Ross, the wife of Jacksonville Jaguars defensive back Aaron Ross, finished the race with a time of 49.55 seconds, edging out silver medalist Christine Ohuruogu of Great Britain by .15 seconds. Richards-Ross overcame a slow start to take the lead on the final turn and held off some late surges to win the race.

Another American, Dee Dee Trotter was able to finish on the podium, as her time of 49.72 was just good enough to win her the bronze medal, as she just edged out Amantle Montsho of Botswana.
