Granbury native Dana Vollmer hasn't won an Olympic gold medal in London yet, but she's on her way. Vollmer qualified for the 100 meter butterfly finals by breaking her own record in the preliminaries on Saturday.

Vollmer was a star in Texas, swimming for Granbury High School seven years ago, when we featured her on a News 8 report. That was one year after she won a gold medal as part of the U.S. relay team in the 2004 Olympics.

Not many athletes win gold, then go back and swim for their high school team... but Dana Vollmer did.

She was scheduled to race in the finals on Sunday.
