OLD FORGE, NY – Friends, family, even a fellow Olympian, gathered alongside residents of Old Forge Sunday to welcome home their hometown Olympian.

Olympic biathlete Maddie Phaneuf invited people to come to McCauley Mountain to thank them for their support, and to talk about her experiences over in Pyeonchang.

She also posed for pictures and signed autographs.

Phaneuf says, even though things didn’t quite go as planned in South Korea, it was still exciting to be there.

“Once I walked through the opening ceremonies that's when it really hit me that I was at the Olympics, part of Team USA and it was just a mind blowing experience. I'm going to take it year by year and see what happens, and hopefully if I continue to see myself doing this for 4 year then I'd like to see myself on the start list in 4 years at Beijing."

Maddie says she definitely benefited from having such a tight knit community like Old Forge and the surrounding community backing her and showing her their love and support.
