Transcript for London 2012 Olympic Games: Missy Franklin's Second Gold, Danell Leyva's Redemption
BOTH OF DANELL LEYVA'S PARENTS WERE CUBAN GYMNASTS. HIS DAD SWAM ACROSS THE RIO GRANDE. LATER, SLIPPED OFF OF THE POMMEL HORSE OVER THE WEEKEND. TOOK THE BLAME FOR TEAM USA MISSING THE MEDAL. BUT CAME IN LAST NIGHT HUNTING FOR REDEMPTION. AND ANOTHER AMAZING CHAPTER IN THEIR AMERICAN DREAM. IT BEGAN WITH THE FATHERLY PEP TALK. A KISS ON THE HEAD, TUG ON THE EARS. AND THEN, DANELL LEYVA POUNDED THROUGH THE FLOOR ROUTINE. LANDING A STATEMENT OF RESOLVE. BUT ON THAT TREADED POMMEL HORSE, A FLUBBED DISMOUNT SEEMED TO SPELL ANOTHER NIGHT OF SHAME. HE MUST HAVE FOUND RESOLVE UNDER THAT LUCKY TOWEL TO ATTACK THE VAULT, TO WIND AROUND THOSE PARALLEL BARS, SMOOTH AS HONEY. AND MAYBE A BRONZE MEDAL FOR THE PRIDE OF MIAMI. BUT THE ELATION, GOLDEN. MEANWHILE, IN THE WATER, THE WOMEN'S 4x200 FREESTYLE, BEGAN WITH A PEDICURE. BUT THE AUSSIES KEPT IT TIGHT UNTIL GEORGIA BULLDOG AILSON SCHMIDT BROUGHT HOME GOLD. WITH ONE SPRINT UP THE POOL AND BACK, NATHAN ADRIAN ADDED HIS NAME TO THE MARQUEE BY NIPPING JAMES "THE MISSILE" MAGNUSSEN BY 0.01 SECONDS. SHOCKING THE AUSTRALIAN STAR AND HIMSELF. TO WIN GOLD, OH. WOW. I ALMOST STARTED CRYING IN THE WATER. AT HOME, MANY PEOPLE FELT THE SAME WAY. THE LAST CLASH OF THE DUEL IN THE POOL WILL HAPPEN TODAY, AS PHELPS AND LOCHTE FACE OFF IN THE 200-METER INDIVIDUAL MEDLEY THERE. PHELPS WON THIS EVENT IN ATHENS AND IN BEIJING. BUT LOCHTE BEAT HIM IN THE SEMIS YESTERDAY. IT SHOULD BE EPIC. THREE OLYMPICS, KERRI WALSH AND MISTY MAY-TREANOR NEVER LOST A SET. UNTIL A PAIR OF AUSTRALIAN SISTERS. THAT MADE THEM ANGRY. THEY MARCHED TOWARD THEIR THIRD GOLD. AND AFTER DAYS OF FRUSTRATION, IT'S SO GOOD TO SEE OUR GENTEEL HOSTS GET THEIR FIRST GOLD. TEAM U.K. GOT IT WHEN HELEN GLOVER AND HEATHER STANNING RODE TO VICTORY. FOUR YEARS AGO, GLOVER WAS A P.E. TEACHER AND DIDN'T KNOW WHICH END OF THE BOAT WAS THE FRONT. SHE LIED IN AN AD. AND THE UNIT IN AFGHANISTAN EXPLODING WITH JOY WHEN THEY CROSSED THE LINE. AND BRADLEY WIGGINS THIS MORNING, BECOMING THE FIRST BRIT TO WIN THE TOUR de FRANCE. HE TOOK GOLD IN THE TIME TRIAL. NOW, EVERY BOY IN ENGLAND IS TRYING TO GROW TWO-FOOT RED SIDE BURNS LIKE THAT. IF YOU LIKE YOUR OLYMPIC NEWS FRESH, NOT FROZEN, JUMP ON MY TWITTER FEED. AND WE'LL KEEP YOU POSTED, JOSH, THROUGHOUT THE GAMES. ALL RIGHT. BRADLEY WIGGINS, SUPERHEROIC. IT'S NICE TO SEE SUN BEHIND YOU, BILL. WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH YOU. IF THE OLYMPICS ARE ABOUT WONDER, THEY'RE ALSO ABOUT REDEMPTION. AND BOY DID THE MEN'S GYMNASTIC SEE THAT AFTER THEY TOOK OLYMPIC BRONZE. DIDN'T TURN OUT AS PLANNED. BUT YOU BETTER BELIEVE THIS IS GONNA SERVE AS A HUGE MOTIVATION FOR EVERYTHING FROM HERE ON OUT. THE MAN WANTED GOLD. LET'S LOOK AT OUR UPDATED MEDAL COUNT.
