LONG BEACH - Former 49er Kenneth Medwood had a memorable Olympic experience at the 2012 London Games as he advanced to the semifinals of the men's 400m hurdles and was the flagbearer for Belize at the opening ceremonies.
In the first round of competition on Aug. 3, Medwood finished fourth in Heat 1 and qualified for the semifinals with a time of 49.78.
The following day, Medwood was unable to advance as the top two from each heat plus the next two fastest times moved on to the finals. Medwood clocked in at 49.87 to place fifth in Heat 2.
Medwood was a member of the Long Beach State track & field team for two years (2009-10) after transferring from East Los Angeles College. He was a six-time All-Big West performer and was the individual conference champion in the 400 hurdles as a senior. Medwood also garnered All-West Region honors and was a two-time national qualifier. The Los Angeles native still holds the LBSU record in the 400H (49.66).
