Evan Jager paid a visit to his old high school in Algonquin, Illinois last Friday and left the students with a gift that will prove as memorable as it will inspirational: his uniform from the 2016 Rio Olympics. 

Jager, who took the silver medal in the men's 3000m steeplechase in Rio, was given a hero's welcome when he was introduced to the students of his alma mater, who got to meet and greet the 28-year-old. 

"I want to show the kids...that really unimaginable things are possible," he said.
