Missy Franklin Receives Twitter Props from Justin Bieber, Scotty McCreery

by at . Comments

Missy Franklin is a new American hero, and now she's reaping the rewards.

A Gold Medal? Sure. Future endorsement deals? Most likely. But the 100-Meter Backstroke champion really hit the jackpot today when she received Twitter props from a handful of celebrities... including Justin Bieber!

"heard @FranklinMissy is a fan of mine. now im a fan of hers too. CONGRATS on winning GOLD! #muchlove," Bieber wrote to the swimmer this morning, which prompted the sort of response you'd expect from a 17-year old:

I just died! Thankyou.

American Idol champion Scotty McCreery also expressed support for Frankilin, Tweeting: "We're rooting for you @franklinmissy! Keep it up! #USA."

Franklin has earned an individual Gold so far and a relay Bronze. She has qualified for five more events and if she advances the finals in each one, she'll become the first female U.S. swimmer to swim in seven event finals in a single Olympics.

I love to see that several celebrities gave her twitter shout outs! I thought this was well deserved, what a lucky young woman to achieve such things at the young age of 17. I’m proud of her accomplishment and I’m sure she’ll have many more celebrity encounters as she continues to excel. I loved watching her win this backstroke and it gave my coworkers and I a lot to talk about at Dish today. I was relieved I was actually able to watch this on my phone using the Dish Remote Access app. I love this app because it allows me to watch live and recorded shows and it allows me to set up timers on my DVR through my phone. I love the convenience and it saves me so much time.
