Eatonton Welcomes Hancock Home Aug. 18

Eatonton welcomes two-time Olympic gold medalist Vince Hancock home on Aug. 18.

That's according to Bonnie Simmons of the Eatonton-Putnam Chamber of Commerce.

She said the city will host a celebration for the Olympic skeet-shooting champ next Saturday.

It will feature a parade, a meet-and-greet with autographs and a shooting demonstration. The day will end with a concert at Eatonton's Plaza Arts Center.

She said the exact schedule for the day is still being worked out. We'll report that schedule as soon as more details are available.

Hancock is an Eatonton native and a U.S. Army soldier currently stationed at Fort Benning. He won gold medals at both Beijing in 2008 and London in 2012.
