Team USA Medalist Celski visits Niketown

Most mere mortals will never have the chance to experience Olympic greatness, but when local Team USA Olympic Speed Skater J.R. Celski (who calls Federal Way home) visits Niketown this Saturday, we can experience the next best thing—seeing the 2010 Bronze medalist up close. The Vancouver Games champ will be on hand to participate in a Q&A and sign autographs. Celski likely won’t loan out his medals for photos, but the first 100 people at the start line will go home with a “J.R. Rocks” tee—a worthy consolation.11 a.m. Free. Niketown, 1500 6th Ave.; 206.447.6453
