It is Day 5 of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, and the USA Women’s Swimming Team – Shannon Vreeland, Dana Vollmer, Missy Franklin and Allison Schmitt – show off their gold medals after winning Women’s 4x200m Freestyle Relay at the Aquatics Centre in London, England.
The fab four finished the relay in 7:42.92, which was a second and a half faster than the silver medal winner, Australia. The French team picked up the bronze medal.
The USA Swim Team came into the London Olympics after releasing a light-hearted, fun video with their medal hopes dancing, strutting and lip-synching to the pop hit ‘Call me maybe’.
It is no longer maybe, but definitely!!
After Wednesday’s win, the women have won twice as many golds (eight) as their nearest rival China and 18 of the 60 medals so far available.
They have collected at least one medal in 17 of the 20 races so far, and 10 more than China.
You go Girls!!
