With the 2012 London Olympics kicking into full swing this weekend, the first batch of medals are starting to be handed out. In the Men's 400M finals, the United States did earn a bronze medal, with Peter Vanderkaay finishing in third. However, Winnetka native Conor Dwyer couldn't find a spot on the medal stand, as he finished in 5th.
