Boise Olympian Kristin Armstrong is about to get a warm welcome home.

The three-time Olympic gold medalist, fresh off her latest win, will be celebrated for her athletic and civic achievements on Sunday, Aug. 28, at Boise's Municipal Park. "Kristin's Gold Games—A Community Celebration" will feature games, music, food and other activities from 1-4 p.m.

Armstrong, who lives in Boise, won her third Olympic gold medal Aug. 10 in the Women's Time Trial in Rio. She took home top honors in the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games in Beijing and London, respectively, and has won two gold medals in the Women's Cycling World Championships time trial.
