Spring Grove welcomes home Olympic swimmer Hali Flickinger

, 505-5432/@JohnJoyceYDParade for Olympian Hali Flickinger

Residents lined Main Street in downtown Spring Grove this Labor Day to honor hometown hero and Olympic swimmer Hali Flickinger as she rode past seated atop the the rear of yellow convertible Chevy Corvette in the town’s holiday parade.

Long before Flickinger placed seventh in the women’s 200-meter butterfly at the 2016 Summer Olypmics in Rio, she was Hali from Spring Grove.

Today she is an Olympic swimmer, an inspiration to her community and, on Monday, grand marshal of her own parade.
