Neighbors, family greet returning MoseleyTIBURON, Calif. (AP) -- Friends and family members swarmed outside Jonny Moseley's home Sunday to greet the Olympic moguls champion on his return from Japan.
Roughly 200 people held up banners and shouted accolades as the 22-year-old skier leaped from a limousine that escorted him home. Tiburon Mayor Harry Matthews presented him with a key to the San Francisco Bay area city.
Moseley used his signature helicopter jump to capture the gold in the men's moguls last week. The win gave the United States its first medal of the Nagano Games.
"We all watched him grow up, and we saw him practice. Now we're here to support our hometown boy," said neighbor Susan Hoehler.
