Justin Bieber has been known these past few weeks as a huge supporter of the 2012 London Olympics. While the Bieber fans are known to have Bieber fever, Bieber has the Olympic fever!
Bieber has been tweeting to some USA gold-medal winners, but he took it one step further for one Olympic athlete! Bieber recorded a video message for Olympic swimmer, Missy Franklin, who has earned four gold medals at the 2012 London Olympics.
Franklin, 17 years-old from Aurora, Colorado, told US Weekly:
“I was flipping out when I saw it! His little brother was in it too and he’s the cutest little thing ever. It was insane. I was so excited. He said he was on vacation so for him to take time out of his vacation to do that for me is so sweet and so special. I’m going to his concert soon. I can’t wait!”
Franklin got her first Twitter shout-out from Bieber after winning her first Olympic gold medal on July 31 for the women’s 100-meter backstroke. Bieber said:
“Heard @FranklinMissy is a fan of mine. Now I’m a fan of hers too. CONGRATS on winning GOLD! #muchlove”
Bieber also sent a congratulatory tweet to the women’s US gymnastics team for taking home the gold at the Team Finals.
