LONDON — The scars are easy to ignore. They crisscross his legs, up above his knees, and Bryshon Nellum doesn't let them bother him anymore. The memories, those are tougher to shake. The last few days, hanging around the Olympic village, waiting for his next race, Nellum has thought about that night in 2008 when two men gunned him down in the street outside a party. PHOTOS: London Olympics, Day 13 The 23-year-old has ruminated about four agonizing years of recovery, the multiple surgeries and the afternoons when he lay crumpled on the track in pain, never knowing if he could regain his speed.

"It's crazy because I never did fall to the ground. I kept going, just to run to safety," said Nellum, who was targeted by two gang members who mistook him for a rival in the early hours of Oct. 31, 2008. "I hopped and skipped on one leg to safety.

USC's Bryshon Nellum and Aaron Brown were the men's individual stars Saturday at the USC-UCLA dual track meet at Loker Stadium. Nellum won the 200-meter dash, something new for the 2012 Olympian, in a time of 20.37 seconds, and he won the 400, his specialty, in 46.26. Aaron Brown won the 100 in 10.24 and led the 400 relay team to a win over UCLA in 40.18 seconds. And yet it was UCLA taking a long, arm-raising, fist-pumping victory lap at the opponent's track. The Bruins' women broke a five-meet losing streak with a 90-73 victory and the Bruins' men won, 85-78.

The Olympics have come and gone for Bryshon Nellum. So has the pain in his legs that made his success in London last summer so amazing. His story was seized upon, correctly so, by much of the media in London, even non-U.S. outlets. After all, even in something as huge as the Olympics, how many athletes win a silver medal in a track event after being shot in the legs and told by doctors they'd never again be a world-class runner? More so, how many carry their country's flag in the closing ceremony?
