Olympic bronze medalists at the London Games, Kristian Ipsen, above, in men's springboard synchronized diving, and Kara Kohler, left, in women's quadruple sculls, are honored with a hometown parade in Clayton on Sept. 15. A large crowd lined Main Street as the Olympic athletes waved to the crowd and proudly displayed their medals. Clayton resident Don Bragg won a gold medal in the pole vault at the 1960 Olympics in Rome.
