    Gold Medal Swimmer Dana Vollmer Returns to her Hometown of Granbury, Texas

     

    Vollmer received a hero's welcome with a parade and very proud hometown. "I can't thank Granbury enough," she told the crowd. "I am just speechless on how much this town has given me. Your support means the world to me. It feels so good to be home in Granbury. This town has been my support system and my second family. I know I wouldn't be where I am today without this town."

     

    Vollmer garnered three gold medals in swimming at the London 2012 Olympics, to add to the gold she had already earned in Athens in 2004. In addition Vollmer, who is the youngest swimmer to have competed in Olympic Trials (at age 12), set a world record in the 100-meter butterfly.
