2012 London Olympics: Allison Schmitt Wins Silver In Women's 400m Freestyle

Pittsburgh-born Allison Schmitt represented her place of birth admirably, bringing home a silver medal in Sunday's women's 400m freestyle competition, finishing with a time of 4:01.77.

She finished behind only Camille Muffat of France, who edged Schmitt by a half stroke, finishing with a time of 4:01.45. The run by Muffat set a new olympic record. Great Britain's Rebecca Adlington finished two seconds behind Schmitt, to secure the bronze. Two-time world champion Federica Pellegrini did not have her best race, finishing fifth.

The silver medal for Schmitt is her second of the 2012 games, as she was also a member of the 4x100-meter freestyle relay team that won a bronze medal on Saturday. She will next compete in the 200-meter freestyle competition which is scheduled to take place on Monday.
