Olympic medals are coming home to Minnesota! Regan Smith of Lakeville won the bronze medal in the women's 100-meter backstroke at the Summer Games last night. The USA women's gymnastic team, which includes Minnesota's Sunisa Lee, got the silver medal. Bowe Becker a former Gopher was part of Team USA's gold medal finish for the 4x100. Plus there are still more Minnesotan's competing in the Olympic Games.

All these Olympic wins are probably making you extra proud that you are a Minnesotan.
