UNC alum Vikas Gowda close to making history as India's first track medalist

Vikas Gowda is one throw from becoming a legend in the world's second-most-populous country. If Gowda, who has trained in Phoenix the past three years, gets on the podium after the discus Tuesday night, he would become India's first Olympic track medalist. Gowda was fifth in qualifying Monday with a throw of 213 feet, 11 inches. (Arizona Republic)
