LONDON — Northeast Ohio Olympic fans have reason to cheer on our Olympic neighbor from the North in London.

Justin Rodhe a 2003 Kenston High School and Mount Union graduate is competing for Canada in shot put.

After graduating college, in 2008 Justin headed to Canada to train. There he met another Canadian track and field athlete who became his wife. Justin became a Canadian citizen in 2011.

His family back in Geauga County says they don’t mind sharing him with two nations and say they will happily cheer for Team USA and Team Canada at the Summer Games.
