The city of Charleston will host an Olympic Finals Watch Party in support of Charleston native and Olympic shot putter Raven Saunders at 8 pm on Saturday, July 31st at the Arthur W. Christopher Community Center, located at 265 Fishburne Street.

The Burke High School alum placed first in this morning’s qualifying throws for the women’s shot put finals with a 19.22 meter throw. This is the second Olympic appearance for Saunders, who competed in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2016.

“We’re excited to be able to come together in support of one of Charleston’s own as she makes history in this year’s Olympic Games,” Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg said. “I hope members of the community will join me tomorrow night to cheer Raven on as she competes for the gold.”
