Dana Vollmer wins Gold and sets a world record at the Olympics!

Dana Vollmer, a well-known American athlete who is currently in London for the Summer Olympics, just set a world record in the 100 meter fly taking the gold metal! Why am I so excited about this? Dana Vollmer is GLUTEN-FREE!

Four years ago, Dana tried out for the Olympics and didn't make it to Beijing. This was a big disappointment after making it to her first Olympic trials at age 12 and making the Olympic team in 2004 at only 17 years of age.

Despite battling injuries after the 2008 tryouts and trying to overcome her food allergy, Dana has made all of her fans proud - especially the gluten-free ones!

I am excited to see how she will continue to do in her career! Follow her on twitter @DanaVollmer
