Olympic medalist returns home

An Olympic silver-medalist returned to his hometown in Bucks County this weekend.

Chris Creveling attended the 5K Challenge at Palisades High School Saturday.

Creveling, a 2005 Palisades graduate, won a silver medal at the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi back in February.

Creveling was part of the U.S. short track men's speed skating relay team.

He was excited to share his success with some old friends in his hometown.

"To bring it home is just another a cherry on top. To see everybody. To come back in this way, I'm honored," Creveling said.

Creveling will be at Palisades High School on Wednesday.

The high school Fitness Center will be dedicated in his honor.
