Justin Bieber is a proud Canadian, but he showed support for American Olympian Missy Franklin, a native of Aurora, Colo. who is competing as a swimmer in the 2012 Olympics. The phenom is from the same town where ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ midnight screening shootings took place last month but she is taking London by storm with her skill and backstroke!

Franklin, 17, is not only a fan of the water. She’s also a dedicated Belieber. Her love of The Biebs is as famous as her exploits in the pool at this point, with the news media often commenting on her Belieber status. So when The Biebs tweeted a note of congratulations after Franklin nabbed gold medals, she was blown out of the water. Sorry, we had to!

The Biebs tweeted that he heard Franklin is a fan and commented that the feeling is mutual. O to the M to the G. Below is Franklin’s tweet, where she quoted and replied to The Biebs.

The water nymph also got some words of support from ‘American Idol’ winner Scotty McCreery, who knows a thing or two or 10 about competing on a national stage. Below is her tweet exchange with the country singer.
