Evansville native and Olympian Lilly King qualified to defend her gold medal at this year's games in Tokyo.
The swimmer won the 100 Meter Breaststroke Tuesday night at the Olympic Trials in Omaha with a time of 1:04.79.
The next athlete to the wall was Lydia Jacoby with a time of 1:05.28.
King won the breaststroke at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
Her parents told 44Sports Director Joe Downs, they were surprised by their reaction to the medal ceremony.
"We're at the Olympics and our kid is standing at the top of the podium. The USA flag is going up; no emotion from either one of us," remembers Ginny King. "We're looking at each other like 'what is wrong with us?' We just really thought she was going to win all along. That's not something we necessarily think every time she races, but her confidence going in was so high."
The Summer Olympics are scheduled for July 23-August 8 in Tokyo, Japan.
