U.S. Olympians Coming to Oak Park

Oak Park native  Emery Lehman and fellow Olympian Kendall Coyne will be at the West Cook YMCA to sign autographs and meet fans this weekend. 

The event starts at 2 p.m. this Sunday, June 22 at the YMCA, 255 S. Marion St. in Oak Park. 

Fans can come by to play games, ask questions and get autographs. 

Lehman was part of the U.S. speed skating team. In January, residents gave him a sendoff to Sochi

"Every person that skates has dreams about the Olympics because that's the pinnacle of all speed skating—that's what everyone wants to do," Lehman said. "So as soon as I started to compete and (started) doing well—that's when I wanted to do it (go to the Olympics)."

Coyne, a Palos Heights native, was a member of the women's national ice hockey team
