Several local residents can claim a connection to an Olympic medalist with American shot putter Reese Hoffa locking up his first Olympic medal on Friday.
Hoffa, 34, earned the bronze after a toss of 21.23 meters (69.65 feet), just two feet short of the gold medalist, Tomasz Majewski of Poland, and an inch-and-a-half ahead of fellow American Christian Cantwell for a spot on the podium.
