Missy Franklin the young 17 year old phenom from Colorado just took Gold in the 100m Back stroke.

If you followed this young lady and her life and how she achieved this goal-you would be proud to be an American!

Nice Job young lady!:thumbs_up:

Ladies doing well- the guys-we'll they need some help!:biggrin:

The Americans lived up to the hype and then some, winning their first Olympic gold medal in women's gymnastics since 1996.

Won it in a rout, too. Their score of 183.596 Tuesday night was a whopping five points ahead of Russia. Romania won the bronze medal.

The Americans had come into the last two Olympics as world champions, only to leave without a gold. But this team is the strongest, top to bottom, the Americans have ever had, and the rest of the world never stood a chance. The U.S. opened with a barrage of booming vaults, held its own on uneven bars and pulled away on balance beam.

By the the time they got to floor exercise, the Russians were in tears on the sidelines, and the Americans turned the final event into a victory party.
