I know gold medals are what the Olympians were really after in London this week. But a tweet
from Taylor Swift is kind of a nice little prize, too. So Swift took
to Twitter Wednesday (Aug. 1) to congratulate two of America’s Olympic sweethearts.
“So blown away by @FranklinMissy! I was so happy to see you win, girl :),” Swift said to Missy (the Missile) Franklin, who
won a gold medal Monday night in the 100-meter backstroke and gold and bronze medals in the relay events. And Swift and Aly
Raisman shared some love, too. Raisman is the captain of the gold medal-winning U.S. gymnastics team. Swift tweeted, “CONGRATS
@Aly_Raisman and all of the fab five on your incredible win!!!” To which Raisman replied, “Thank you so much Taylor! You just
made my night! You are my favorite singer!!!!” Raisman also had sweet tweets from Lady Gaga, Pink and more.
