NORFOLK, Va. - The City of Norfolk is set to celebrate Olympic medalist Keyshawn Davis this weekend.

On Saturday, August 21, the city will honor the local athlete's Olympic win.

Davis is an Olympic silver medalist after competing against Cuba's Andy Cruz in the boxing match. Last Monday, the city gathered at Norfolk International Airport to welcome him home.

Due to expected inclement weather, the city says the remarks portion of the event will take place at 11:15 a.m. at the Lambert’s Point Recreation Center, located at 1251 W. 42nd Street. A parade processional was originally scheduled, but it has been canceled.

Doors will open at 10:30 a.m. Face coverings are required while in the facility.

City officials, Davis and his family will provide remarks.
