Gold medal winner Missy Franklin gets tweet from Justin Bieber
Teenage girls around the world may be jealous of U.S. swimmer Missy Franklin this morning, and not because she won a gold medal in the 100-meter backstroke Monday.
The 17-year-old Franklin, who is quickly becoming one of the stars of the London Olympics, received a message from pop star Justin Bieber on Twitter.
Franklin had a busy Monday. She qualified for the final of the 200-meter freestyle and, less than 15 minutes later, hit the pool again in the 100 back. She broke her own American record in taking her first Olympic gold medal.
