American swimmer Allison Schmitt is looking to make it two golds in two days when she takes to the pool for the 4x200 meter freestyle relay on Wednesday.
Schmitt set an Olympic record in winning the gold in the 200-meter free on Tuesday night, and she'll have plenty of star power with her on the American team. Missy Franklin is there as well, and the 17-year-old is already on her way to becoming the next U.S. swimming star.
The Americans will be trying to reclaim the gold in the event after losing it to the Australians in Beijing. The U.S. finished third in that race.
