VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- Olympic Silver Medalist Lawrence "LoJo" Johnson will be hosting "A Night with an Olympian" on Tuesday, November 27 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Freeman Center.
Johnson, who recently moved back to the Tidewater community, is hosting the event to share his experiences as a collegiate and professional pole vaulter and to promote development in track and field and the pole vault throughout Virginia.
"A Night with an Olympian" is free to the public and directed towards high school coaches, athletes, and parents throughout Southeastern Virginia. The evening will be divided into two segments; an intimate multimedia presentation sharing experiences from collegiate and professional track and field including a Q/A session, and a free clinic introducing the most efficient methods to train and develop strong pole vault and track and field fundamentals.
Lawrence “LoJo” Johnson is one of the most decorated pole vaulters in US history. A graduate of Chesapeake's Great Bridge High School, LoJo became the first American to earn an international medal after a 20 year drought in the event. Johnson would continue on to become a seven-time US champion, two-time Olympian, and World Champion. His accolades include the records across all stages including the former American Indoor/Outdoor Records and the current NCAA all time record.
