How many Americans can say that they won an Olympic gold medal in judo? Well, only Kayla Harrison can.

Harrison became the first American to win the gold in judo just a few months ago in London. She defeated four women en route to the gold, taking down hometown hero Gemma Gibbons in the final match.

Fans can meet the Olympic hero on Satuday, Sept. 29 at Pedro's Judo Center in Salem from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. ET.
