TOKYO, Japan — Track athlete at NC A&T Trevor Stewart just won his first medal of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics with the Mixed 4x400m Relay along with Team USATF Saturday, according to officials.

The American lineup included Stewart (24 years old), Kendall Ellis (25), Kaylin Whitney (23) and Vernon Norwood, the elder statesman at 29.

"Did the best to come away with the bronze," Norwood said in an interview with the Associated Press. "Give a lot of credit to the team here and the team that ran before us to give us the opportunity."
