Missy Franklin added some star power to her fan base during her breakout performance in the pool.
Teen idol Justin Bieber tweets: "Heard (at)FranklinMissy is a fan of mine. Now I'm a fan of hers too! CONGRATS on winning GOLD! (Hashtag)muchlove."
Franklin may be one of the rising stars in swimming for Team USA, but she's also 17 years old.
"I just died," Franklin tweeted in response. "Thank you!"
