TELLURIDE, Colo. (CBS4) – The city of Telluride welcomed home Olympic athlete Gus Kenworthy on Saturday.
The city gathered for a parade in the Telluride native’s honor.
Kenworthy won a silver medal in slopestyle skiing while in Sochi for the winter Olympics.
“I really thank you guys so much for your support. It’s just incredible, I couldn’t be prouder to come from this town,” said Kenworthy.
Kenworthy was one of several athletes that decided to adopt stray puppies from Russia.
He held one of those dogs while walking in the parade.
