During an Olympic pre-competition special on NBC yesterday, 17 year-old gold medalist Missy Franklin said that she's a big Justin Bieber fan. The humble teenager actually won her very first gold medal for the 100-Meter Backstroke. But if being the best in the world wasn't enough for the rising star, getting a Tweet from Biebus made it even better.
Justin Tweeted: "heard @FranklinMissy is a fan of mine. now im a fan of hers too. CONGRATS on winning GOLD! #muchlove,"
Missy, real name Melissa (thank God), responded with: "I just died! Thankyou."
I admire Justin
and the people who write his Tweets for being so thoughtful.
Missy still has five more events to compete in. She has already earned a relay Bronze and an individual Gold. Congrats Missy!
