Glenview welcomed home two Olympic champions Friday. Marching bands from local schools entertained the crowds that lined the northern suburb's streets to welcome the athletes back home.

Brian Hansen and Lana Gehring are Glenbrook South High School graduates who competed in the 2010 Olympics.

Hansen was a silver medalist in speed skating in the team long track event. Gehring was part of the short track team which won the bronze. Both talked to their hometown supporters about the experience of taking part in the Games.

They also signed autographs and took pictures with young athletes who hope to follow in their footsteps.
