Silver Medal for Prandini, Gardner in 4x100

EUGENE, Ore. – Former UO standout Jenna Prandini won her first Olympic medal Friday, helping Team USA to a silver medal in the women's 4x100-meter relay. English Gardner, who ran on the qualifying team in the prelims, also earns a silver and becomes the first UO woman with two Olympic medals.

Prandini teamed with Javianne Oliver, Teahna Daniels and Gabby Thomas to get the baton around track in 41.45, trailing only Jamaica (41.02) in the race. Like Gardner did in the preliminary heat, Prandini ran the third leg in the lineup and helped strengthen the team's hold on second before handing off to Thomas on anchor.
