Gulfport Olympian Returns to the Coast
Our own home grown Olympian Brittney Reese is back here on the Coast this weekend.
The Gulfport native spent her first hours back mingling with fans and signing autographs at the Island View Casino. She’s only home for a few short days, but has plenty of events and activities planned for the community while she is here.
Reese tells News 25 she just wants to give back to the community who has supported her for so long. “I had a lot of people emailing me and telling me about the people that supported me. Facebook is where I communicate with the community. I had a lot of people writing me and telling me good luck and how proud they were of me. It’s great to have the community behind me and makes me just do better.”
Reese will host a speed and agility clinic for kids tomorrow. The clinic is set for Saturday from 11 to 3 at Gulfport High School. It’s for children ages eight and up.
Registration begins at 10. The cost is $35 if you’re pre-registered and $40 if you register tomorrow.
