Olympic track star’s stolen medals found, returned

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. – There’s a story behind every Olympic medal.

But the medals in this news story now tell an unexpected tale of mystery. They were stolen from DeKalb County track star Angelo Taylor last week.

What are the odds that anyone would find them?

Lorenzo Kerry found them.

He found them Wednesday morning at work. Kerry is the maintenance supervisor for A2B Budget Hotel on Candler Road at I-20.

He tells 11Alive News he was walking on the fourth-floor breezeway when he spotted a crumpled-up paper bag on the floor, next to a trash can.

“I picked it up, was going to throw it away, but it was kind of heavy,” Kerry said Wednesday night. “I looked in there, lo and behold….”

Inside the crumpled paper bag that Kerry almost threw away were two Olympic track medals, from the Beijing Olympics and the London Olympics, as well as a World Championship Track medal, all attached to their original lanyards.
