Olympian Tracks Down Volunteer Who Helped Him Take Home His 1st Gold Medal.

Jamaican hurdler Hansle Parchment has a lot of people to thank for helping him reach the Tokyo Olympics – literally!

When he was making his way to the semifinals for the 110-meter hurdles, he accidentally got on the wrong bus, which took him to an aquatic part of the arena. At that point, his options were limited and time was running out. Luckily, he was able to find a generous Olympic volunteer named Tiana, who gave him money for a taxi when she realized what was going on.

Because he was able to make it to the semifinals, Hansle went on to take home his first gold medal! Wanting to give Tiana the recognition she deserved, Hansle tracked her down to let her know the exciting news and to thank her for the kindness she showed him.

Watch their sweet reunion play out in the video below, and don’t forget to share this beautiful act of kindness.
