Franklin, Grevers win gold in 100 meters
Colorado native Missy Franklin was all smiles Monday after claiming her first career Olympic gold medal. “Indescribable,” the 17-year-old Franklin said after rallying to win the 100-meter backstroke. “I still can’t believe that happened. I don’t even know what to think. I saw my parents’ reaction on the screen, and I just started bawling. I can’t even think right now.”
Colorado’s Missy Franklin rallied in the last 25 meters, capturing her first Olympic gold medal by winning the 100-meter backstroke in 58.33 seconds Monday in London.
Matthew Grevers made if five Olympic gold medals in a row for the U.S. in the men’s 100-meter backstroke, claiming the title Monday night in London. Fellow American Nick Thoman captured the silver.
