Day 3 Olympic Recap


- Missy Franklin picked up her first Olympic gold medal on Monday evening, winning the women's 100-metre backstroke even just fifteen minutes after sailing through a semi-final heat. (Both her parents are canadians and visits NS)

- Fifteen-year-old Ruta Meilutyte made history in the women's 100-metre breaststroke final on Monday evening, winning Lithuania's first swimming medal in the history of the Olympic Games.


Great Britain won their first-ever silver medal in the team competition for men's artistic gymnastics at London 2012, but lost it to Japan after an official inquiry.
An official protest submitted by Japan changed Kohei Uchimura's difficulty ranking on the pommel horse. His score was changed to a 14.100 from a 13.466 after the inquiry was accepted.
The Brits lost their silver medal to Japan as a result, having to settle for bronze.
