The Olympic bronze medallist Sam Oldham will receive a hero's welcome back to his home town of Keyworth today (September 15th).
The Nottinghamshire gymnast won bronze at this summer's Olympic games.
Keyworth Parish Council has arranged an open-top car celebration to welcome the Olympian home.
He'll be driven by the local butcher, Bob Green. He will then attend a reception and receive his celebration cake.
– Tony Grice, Keyworth Parish Council Chairman
"We are so proud of Sam and it seemed a fitting idea to celebrate his success. His diary has been so full since the Games that this is the earliest that we have been able to organise this celebration."
Sam is funded by the Nottinghamshire County Council's Shining Stars fund.
– Cllr John Cottee
"It was a stunning performance for the men's gymnastics team in London and we are looking forward to welcoming him back to Keyworth to celebrate his success."
