WEST CHESTER TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- West Chester's police and fire departments might see a flag they once flew on the podium with U.S. athletes in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
The departments took part in the Team USA Bobsled and Skeleton American Flag First Responders Relay. West Chester received the flag from first responders in Trotwood, Ohio and flew it Oct. 26. It then was relayed to Michigan.
Matthew Troy created the flag relay, and he said it is similar to the relay of the Olympic torch. He was inspired by a flag etiquette presentation for Olympic athletes.
The flags were presented to the athletes for their journey to the 2018 Winter Olympics. Troy said the flags may accompany athletes if they make the podium.
