This week has been a dream come true for U.S. Olympic swimmer Missy Franklin -- in more ways than one.
On Monday, Franklin won her first individual Olympic gold medal in the 100-meter backstroke after finishing a 200-meter freestyle semifinal only ten minutes before.
Everyone took notice of the 17-year-old's win, including Justin Bieber!
"Heard [Missy Franklin] is a fan of mine. now im a fan of hers too. CONGRATS on winning GOLD! #muchlove,"the singer tweeted.
A true Belieber, Franklin excitedly responded, "I just died! Thank you!"
