Kikkan Randall returns home to celebrate Olympic victory
It's welcome home week for Alaska's Olympic champion and cross-country skier Kikkan Randall. Wednesday night, you'll have a chance to meet her and also get a peek at that hard-earned gold medal.
She and her teammate, Jessie Diggins, won the gold medal in the team sprint at the Winter Olympics in South Korea, which was Team USA's first-ever medal for women's cross-country skiing.
After four months on the road, Randall is back home in Anchorage with not just an Olympic gold medal but a bronze medal from the World Cup circuit.
Wednesday night in Town Square Park, Randall is doing a meet-and-greet with fans. Plus, Paralympian and 2018 gold and silver medalist Andrew Kurka will also be there.
The event is free for the whole family and includes music, activities, food, fireworks and much more.
The celebration begins at 5:30 p.m. and is expected to run until 8:30 p.m.
