Missy Franklin on winning Olympic gold: "I'm on cloud 687"

On Monday evening, champion swimmer and breakout Olympic star Missy Franklin visited the "Piers Morgan Tonight" set in London, taking some time out from her ever-growing schedule to discuss a whirlwind trip across the pond.

On the heels of capturing five medals – including four gold's – Franklin admitted to enjoying the moment:

"Everyone is like 'are you on cloud nine?' I'm on cloud like 687," she told Piers Morgan.

"I don't even know what to think right now. I'm just trying to like fathom everything," said the 17-year-old rising high school senior. "It's weird because when you win a medal, you actually get to hold your dream in your hands, which is just - I mean, nothing can describe that feeling. It's so unbelievable."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Morgan concludes his coverage of the 2012 London Olympic games by interviewing the reigning world-record holder in the women's 200 meter backstroke.
