Two athletes with Georgia connections are celebrating gold medal performances at the London Olympics.
Former UGA swimmer Allison Schmitt won the gold medal Tuesday in the 200-meter freestyle with an Olympic record time of 1:53.61, almost two seconds faster than the silver medalist.
Schmitt, a five-time NCAA champion at Georgia, also won silver in the 400 freestyle and bronze in the 4×100 freestyle relay.
“I got a whole collection of them now,” said Schmitt, of Michigan, who also won a relay bronze at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. “Right now, they’re somewhere in my room — a secret place,” she told the Detroit News. “I kind of stashed them.”
Vincent Hancock of Eatonton won gold in skeet shooting.
Hancock, who also won a gold medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, missed only two of 150 shots, an Olympic record.
Still that wasn’t good
