American swimmer Ryan Murphy won the 100-metre backstroke in Rio to pick up the first gold medal of his young career, Now eyes on 200m backstroke

When Murphy was eight, he hand-wrote a letter to his parents to inform them that he had very serious Olympic aspirations.

This race was always going to be tight too, with less than a second separating the qualifying times of the entire final field of eight. Despite touching first, Larkin missed out on a bronze medal by just 0.03, while Lacourt also missed out on a medal.

 “I think every athlete on the pool deck wants to stand on the top spot of the podium,” he conceded.

“But my speed was good today. I’ve really been trying to push the top end a bit more, and now I can focus on the 200.
