Missy Franklin Wins Gold at 2012 Olympics!

Missy Franklin waves the American flag proudly and shows off her shiny gold medal during the medal ceremony for the Women’s 100m Backstroke on Day 3 of the London 2012 Olympic Games at the Aquatics Centre on Monday (July 30) in London.

The 17-year-old athlete beat out Emily Seebohm of Australia and Aya Terakawa of Japan, who took home silver and bronze.

“Who’s ready for a double?:) really happy with my swim this morning and can’t wait for my exciting turn around tonight!” Missy tweeted just before her events.

Missy only had a 13-minute break from the semi-finals to the finals!

Congrats, Missy!
