He may be beaming in the picture above but Olympic swimmer Brendan Hansen wasn't too happy recently when he found that his gold medal had gone missing. Hansen, who won the gold in the 4x100m medley relay, found that his medal was missing after he flew from Philadelphia to Austin, Texas. His medal was looked at by security personnel at Philadelphia International Airport but it was reportedly put back in the bag. Hansen put the bag under the seat in front of him on the plane and fell asleep. The plane had a layover in Nashville and then Hansen found the medal was missing after he landed in Texas.
MyFox Philadelphia reports that a passenger on board the flight found the medal on the floor of the plane and called the FBI. Now Hansen and his medal will be happily reunited although I suspect he might keep it a bit closer next time he travels.
