Kelsi Worrell -- A Hero Returns -- WEDNESDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


They stood and waited...young and old...for the passengers to disembark from a Southwest Airlines flight from Chicago.

Not just any flight. The flight carrying Olympics swimmer Kelsi Worrell.

Plenty of Louisville shirts. Posters, balloons, American flags and chants of 'USA,USA'. The young woman that has had Louisville glued to the television from 8 -9 p.m. over the past couple of weeks was coming back to the 'Ville after making the USA Olympic swimming team in the 100 Butterfly and friends, family, fans and teammates were there to greet her and cheer her accomplishments. 

UofL is having a press conference/media event Thursday at the YUM! Practice facilities' press room for her and the other five with Louisville ties that will be representing their nations in swimming in Rio. It'll be the only media chance to see them before they splash off for Olympic training. We'll be there to get the words. 

Besides Worrell...Tanya Kylliainen (Finland) represents the women's swimming team at Louisville. On the men's side...Joao DeLuca (Brazil), Grigory Tarasevich (Russia), Carlos Claverie (Venezuela) and Marcelo Acosta (El Salvador) will take to the water. Arthur Albiero, head Louisville swimming and diving coach, will also be on hand.

The joy and excitement of UofL women's sports was clearly on display at the Louisville International Airport. Here's hoping it carries over to the 2016 Olympics!

  1. Nice greeting for Kelsi. She has her work cut out for her to get gold in Rio but I'll be cheering her on.
