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.
