At 17 years old, Missy Franklin isn't taking anything for granted, attacking the field in London as if it's her last Olympics.
That includes the new world record she set in her signature event, the 200-meter backstroke, on Day 7.
Franklin cruised into victory easily for her third gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics, making her the most decorated female at these Games.
She has one more race in her first Olympics, the 4x100-meter individual medley on Day 8, and she is looking to wrap up London with a fourth gold medal.
But, is one last gold in her future? Mel Stewart, a two-time gold medalist in his own right, is here with the breakdown.
