Athing Mu is being welcomed back home in style.

The city of Trenton, N.J. will hold a parade for the Olympic gold medalist and hometown hero on Sunday, Aug. 29, according to NJ Advance Media.

Set to begin at 2 p.m. ET, the parade will commence at Trenton Central High School, from which Mu graduated in 2020, and end at City Hall. The first American woman since 1968 to win a gold medal in the 800 meters, Mu also helped Team USA win gold in the 4×400-meter relay in Tokyo earlier this month.

Since then, the 19-year-old set an American record in the 800m at the Prefontaine Classic, coming in first with a time of 1:55.04.

The city plans to announce more details about the parade in the coming days.
