Missy Franklin Takes Gold

U.S. high school student Missy Franklin swam a U.S. record in the women's 100-meter backstroke to take gold from Emily Seebohm, an Australian who overcame swine flu last year to reach the Olympic Games in London.

Franklin, a 17-year-old from Colorado, won in 58.33 seconds yesterday. Seebohm finished in 58.68 for the silver medal and Aya Terakawa of Japan took the bronze medal in 58.83.

"I never thought I'd be able to do it at 17," Franklin said in a news conference after she had cried and forgotten the words to the U.S. national anthem during the medal ceremony. "It feels absolutely incredible."
