Minnesota’s Plummer gets to share in the glow
David Plummer now has a gold medal to hang around his neck. Plummer, of Minneapolis, won the bronze medal in the 100 backstroke on Monday. And when the U.S. team of Ryan Murphy, Cody Miller, Michael Phelps and Nathan Adrian took gold in the 4x100 medley relay on Saturday night, Plummer got to share in the victory, too. The former Gopher led off for the U.S. in the qualifying heat on Friday, helping his team advance to Saturday’s final. By virtue of swimming in the heat, Plummer — along with teammates Kevin Cordes, Tom Shields and Caeleb Dressel — also earned gold.
