A Canadian Olympic Medalist coached dozens of our area youth at the LeGrand Center, Saturday.

Ben Johnson held the world record in the 100-meter dash and won the 1988 Olympic Gold Medal. Now he is a coach and motivational speaker, and Saturday he shared his story with nearly 100 area youth at the Angelo State University LeGrand Center.

Kids received speed agility lessons from former Olympian, Ben Johnson, and the Executive Director of Youth Achieving Through Service and Sports Inc., Coach Sanford Mouton.
