Olympic champion Hansle Parchment won the Gold Medal at Tokyo Olympics all thanks to a volunteer. The Jamaican hurdler won the men’s 110 metre hurdle race event and also scored a season-best timing of 13.04 seconds on Aug 5. He is beyond grateful for the Olympic volunteer who made his gold medal dreams come true.

Parchment, 31, shared a video detailing the story of how a Good Samaritan helped him get to the proper venue for his semi-final race after he took the wrong bus. He added that as he was listening to music he boarded a bus and ended up at the wrong venue. A woman named Trijana gave him money to catch a taxi. It helped him to reach the venue and win the gold medal too.

After winning the Olympic medal, Hansle Parchment tracked down the volunteer and gifted her a T-shirt. He also returned the money and showed her the medal he won in the sprint.

Volunteer Trijana also shared an Instagram post, with her picture wearing the T-shirt that Parchment gifted her.
