Several local athletes will be representing the United States and Clark County at the Olympics in London, and on Tuesday they'll be formally honored during a meeting of the Clark County Commission.
Athletes Amanda Bingson, Michael Hunter and Khadevis Robinson are expected to attend.
Bingson, a Silverado High School graduate, will compete in the hammer throw. She is a senior at UNLV.
Hunter, a graduate of Palo Verde High School, is a heavyweight boxer. A three-time national champion and Golden Gloves winner, he is appearing in his first Olympics.
Robinson, head coach of the UNLV cross country team and an assistant UNLV track coach, will compete in the 800 meter race. He is an eight-time champion and competed in the 2004 Olympics.
"It is truly an honor to recognize these tremendous athletes who will be representing the United States and Clark County in this year's Olympics," Commission Chair Susan Brager said. "We all wish them much success in bringing home the gold."
The meeting begins at 9:15 am in the Commission Chambers on the first floor of the County Government Center, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway in downtown Las Vegas.
