Like pretty much everyone else on the planet, we've been following the story of hometown girl turned Olympics idol Missy Franklin, who's now the proud owner of four gold medals and one bronze.

Fortunately, she's made doing so easy by sharing plenty of messages and photos via her Twitter feed -- and she did so again before and after yesterday's closing ceremonies at the London games.

Some swimmers didn't stick around for the wrap-up to the Olympics, given that their events were over around a week earlier. But Franklin, who seems to be savoring every moment of the experience, wouldn't have missed it for the world, as she notes in this tweet.

The above pic is the only one she's posted thus far. But she's got plenty of time. The 2012 Olympics may be over, but we've got a creeping feeling her Olympic experience is far from over -- and the same can be said for her time on the podium.
