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
