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.
