Athing Mu

TRENTON — The city of Trenton held a parade for Olympic gold medalist Athing Mu on Sunday afternoon.

The parade started at Trenton Central High and went through the city streets lined with fans all the way to City Hall.

Mu was then presented with two keys to the city — one for each gold medal she won at the Tokyo Olympics — by mayor Reed Gusciora and city council president Kathy McBride.

Mu, 19, was the first American woman since 1968 to win gold in the 800 meters and then anchored the star-studded 4×400 relay team in a championship performance.

Here are some of the best shots from the parade captured by our photographer Rich Hundley III.
