Nageotte won an unexpected gold for the United States in the pole vault at the Tokyo Olympics ahead of world champion Anzhelika Sidorova of Russia.
To kick off the homecoming celebration, the Olmsted Falls Fire Department escorted Nageotte from Village Green to Olmsted Falls High School.
Community members were invited to line up along Columbia Road between the Village Green and Bagley Road, and along Bagley Road from Columbia Road to just east of Olmsted Falls High School, to cheer her on.
The celebration continued at Vitamix Field at Charles A. Harding Memorial Stadium. Starting at 5 p.m., the homecoming featured a performance by the marching band and cheerleaders.
Nageotte was available for a meet and greet with attendees.
The 30-year-old graduated from Olmsted Falls High School in 2009 and attended Ashland University.
