The City of Hampton is honoring local Olympians Francena McCorory and Kellie Wells with giant billboards displaying their images and successes.

The digital billboards are up on Interstate 64 and Interstate 664 in Hampton.

McCorory, a graduate of Bethel High School and Hampton University, won a gold medal as a member of the U.S. Olympic women’s 4×400 meter relay team. Wells, a Hampton University graduate, won a bronze medal in the women’s 100 meter hurdles.

It appears both local track stars have heard about their billboards. McCorory tweeted
