About Bryshon
When doctors told Bryshon Nellum he would never return to a world-class level of running, he kept pushing forward. Stunned after he was shot three times in the legs after leaving a party near the USC campus, Nellum went through three surgeries to slowly remove the damage and began the process of recovery. Though the recovery was slow, Nellum’s drive paid off when he finished third in the 400m at the Olympic Trials in a personal-best 44.80 seconds and earned a berth on the London Olympic team. For his ability to overcome such tragedy and reach the highest level in sport, Nellum was slected as flag bearer for the Closing Ceremony for Team USA at the London Olympic Games.  In 2013 Nellum claimed his first NCAA Outdoor championship in the 400m with a personal best time of 44.73. He graduated from USC in May of 2013.
