Local Pennridge Athlete Headed to Olympic Games in Rio


During Pennridge Community Day
, come out and meet Matt Baranoski, who has earned his place on the USA Olympic Track Cycling Team for the keirin event at the Olympics in August in Rio.   (Keirin is a form of motor-paced cycle racing in which track cyclists sprint for victory following a speed-controlled start behind a motorized or non-motorized pacer)  

Matt, age 23, has earned a total of 32 Elite, Junior and Collegiate Track Cycling National Championship Titles. He has won two World Cup medals & has earned his place on the USA Olympic Team! He is also the youngest USA Cycling Elite National champion to date when he was age 17.

At noon, he will be part of the opening ceremony at the Sellersville Veterans Monument. Then he will be signing  autographs near the Pennridge Chamber of Commerce table  located between the Twin Bridges and meeting everyone! Come out and give him  strong community support and send off!
