BREMERTON, Wash. — Monday was Nathan Adrian day in Bremerton and the city honored the London Olympics medal-winning swimmer by naming a street Nathan Adrian Drive.

After winning two golds and a silver in London, Adrian went through a rush of media appearances before spending time with family and friends in Bremerton.

He leaves Wednesday for Berkeley, Calif., where he trains. Adrian told the Kitsap Sun he’s already thinking of the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
