As far as medal counts go, here’s a list of the top 10 women from the London 2012 Olympics. We’re aware that many women tied on medals, so the list goes in alphabetical order, with the sacrifice of Gabbie Douglas in place of Charlotte Dujardin as, well USA had appeared too much already and needed to get a Team GB in there!! This is just a snap shot of the awesome achievements gained by women at the Olympics, a games where they proved women most definitely can play sport too.
|Elisa Di Francisca||Italy||Fencing||2||0||0|
|Charlotte Dujardin||Great Britain||Dressage||2||0||0|
She’s not Team GB, but USA’s Melissa ‘Missy‘ Jeanette Franklin, with four gold medals, one bronze, two World Records and three American records during these games at the grand old age of 17 has certainly made her mark as a star of now, let alone the future.
