Havertown's Hansen to have shot at 100m breaststroke Gold

Havertown, PA native and University of Texas product Brendan Hansen, back at the Olympics once again for a final shot at an individual Gold medal, will get that chance for glory.

Hansen qualified for the final of the 100-meter breaststroke Saturday night in London, sneaking in with the eighth and final spot by a paltry .11 seconds.

The 30-year-old Hansen already claims two Olympic gold medals, but both came in relays. He won a Silver and Bronze medal in individual events in Athens eight years ago, but was shut out and shut down by rival Kosuke Kitajima four years back in Beijing.

The 100-meter finals are scheduled for Sunday afternoon. Broadcast is scheduled for 3:11 PM, according to NBC's Olympic web site.
