Louisiana Olympic gold medalist Vernon Norwood

RUNNING WAS ALWAYS NATURAL FOR VERNON NORWOOD, BUT HE NEVER THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD BRING HIM ONTO THE NATIONAL STAGE. WITH THE OLYMPIC GOLD AND BRONZE MEDALS AROUND THE NECK, THE MAN HAD A BIGGER PLAN FOR ME THAT I DID NOT EVEN KNOW MYSELF. BUT I AM EXTREMELY GRATEFUL. I AM EXTREMELY HUMBLE FOR IT. NORWOOD WAS BORN AND RAISED IN NEW ORLEANS. HIS FAMILY MOVED TO MORGAN CITY AFTER HURRICANE KATRINA, AND HE RECALLS A ROUGH CHILDREN CHILDREN. Single mom, three different brothers. SO WAS NOT REALLY MUCH ABOUT. HE SAYS THE ONLY FINISH LINE HE CROSSED WAS BEHIND BARS. I HAVE BEEN ARRESTED MANY TIMES, OF COURSE I WAS NOT THE WAY IN THE JUVENILE INSTITUTION IN THE FAST LANE TO A LIFE WITHOUT PURPOSE OR REASON. DRUGS. NOT GOING TO SCHOOL. STEALING THIS TEENAGE DELINQUENT THING OUT OF THE ROUND I WAS ON WAY TO THE END OF THIS WITH A SERIOUS, PROBABLY IN PRISON OR PROBABLY DEAD. AND THAT BROKE HIS MOTHER’S HEART. SO HE DECIDED TO PUT HIS ENERGY INTO SPORT. SHE’S GOING THROUGH A REALLY HARD TIME, YOU KNOW, TO COME WITH ME AND MY BROTHERS. AT FIRST, HE JOINS THE BASKETBALL AND LIGHTWAY TEAMS JUST FOR FUN. BUT HIS RARE TALENT IS ATTENTION TO COACH DENNIS SHAVER OF LSU. WE ART RECRUITED HIM AND THEN HE WENT TO JUNIOR COLLEGE AND THEN WE RECRUITED HIM FROM JUNIOR COLLEGE TO GO TO LSU. AND THE REST IS, AS THEY SAY, HISTORY. AND WHEN HE CAME HERE, HE WAS OF COURSE AN ALL-AMERICAN NCAA CHAMPION. AND THEN YOU KNOW, HE STAYS HERE AND HAS TRAINED. TRAINED TO WIN THREE GOLD MEDALS AT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS. GOLD IN THE INDOOR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS AND AN OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL IN THE 4×400 METERS RELAY. VERNON NOW SAYS THAT HIS MOTHER IS CRYING TEARS OF JOY. EVERYWHERE WE GO, SHE IS SUPER PROUD OF ME. SHE LET EVERYONE KNOW WHO I AM WHO WHO DOESN’T KNOW WHO I AM. SO I ALWAYS HAVE A MOMENT WITH ME. AND WHILE TRAINING FOR HIS NEXT BIG MOMENT, HE TAKES THE TIME TO GIVE ME THIS INTERVIEW BECAUSE IT PAINS HIM TO SEE THAT TODAY’S YOUTH COMMIT TO SO MUCH CRIME. HE WANTS TO TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE FLEEING THE DIFFICULTIES AND GOING TOWARDS YOUR GOAL TO BECOME A TRUE CHAMPION IN LIFE. I AM FROM THE SAME PLACE YOU COME FROM, YOU KNOW, SINGLE PARENTS, YOU KNOW, NO LEADERSHIP. I actually hope that in the long run.
