American swimmer Lydia Jacoby has won the gold medal in the women's 100m breaststroke.
Jacoby, just 17, was not expected to win the event. She beat South Africa’s Tatjana Schoenmaker, who clinched silver, and Lilly King of the US, who collected bronze.
Jacoby is the first-ever Olympic swimmer from Alaska.
She went to high school in Seward, a small, picturesque city in the south of the state with a population of fewer than 3,000 people.
