Kenora's swimming sensation, Gabe Mastromatteo, is in Tokyo for the 2020 Olympic Summer Games and residents and businesses are encouraged to show their support for the 19-year-old.
A local woman is looking for everyone to "Paint the Town Gabe" to let our olympian know that we are rooting for him as he competes in three events in Japan.
"When Mike Richards competed in hockey in 2010, the entire town got behind him and stores had displays in their windows. So I thought 'why can't we do the same thing for Gabe?'," says Andrea Ronnebeck.
She is asking residents and businesses to create signs for their windows or to put up flags and just be creative. She also challenges businesses in the region to display their support on their signs.
"I just think that we have so many visitors in town now and we should let them know that Kenora is more than a tourist destination. We have people who live here, work here, train here and accomplish great things," she adds.
Gabe will swim in his first event on Saturday morning in the 100 metre breaststroke at 6:55 a.m. CST.
Andrea will join Wednesday's Q Morning Show to tell us more!
Go Gabe, Go!
