With loads of support behind him, US Olympian Charles Conwell is returning home.

“The support was enormous…support from different states, not just Ohio,” said Annette Conwell, the 18 year old Olympian’s mother.

And after almost a year of training, Charles Conwell’s road to Rio finally became a reality.

“I said to my teammate, we are really in the Olympics? That’s crazy! We’re like all so young and we’re really here,” he said.

His father and boxing coach Charles Conwell Sr. shared the time in Rio was unforgettable.

“It was a great experience, you know you’re at the top of your game when you’re headed to the Olympics.”
