Pensacola Sports to Welcome Home Justin Gatlin

Public Invited to Free Event at Seville Quarter 

Pensacola Sports is pleased to announce it will host a “Welcome Home Party” for Pensacola native Justin Gatlin on Friday, October 6 at Seville Quarter from 4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.  This will be Justin’s first-time home since he was crowned “World Champion” in the 100m at the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London on August 5.

The free event will be held in the Phineas Phoggs room where Gatlin will meet with the guests.  He will be available for photographs and signatures.  Additionally, the guests are encouraged to sign a special “Congratulations” banner upon entering, which will be presented to Justin.

Gatlin returns home on Wednesday, October 4 at 8:30 a.m. at the Pensacola International Airport.  We encourage all fans to greet Justin and give him a warm Pensacola welcome.

With Justin’s gold medal at the 2017 World Championships, that brings his medal count to eight at the World Championships including three gold, five Olympic medals, and two gold medals at the World Indoor Championships.
