Local Olympian racewalker returns to Rochester

Local News

Another local Olympian has returned home from Rio! We caught up with Miranda Melville at the Rochester airport on Wednesday.

She competed in the woman’s 20 kilometers racewalk. She didn’t win a medal, but says it was all worth it.

“100 percent worth it,” Melville said. “You’re never a past Olympian or former Olympian – you’re always an Olympian, and to say that now, it will stay with me forever.”

Melville also wanted to give a big thank you to the Rochester community for all the love and support.
