Rebecca talks about how as a child she didn't dream about begin an Olympic swimmer as she didn't believe dreams like that would come true for normal people like her. She loved swimming purely for the workout and training but as she continued to swim in college she started to think that maybe she could go to the Olympics. Rebecca talks about the moment she won her gold for women's 200m breaststroke in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. She knew pretty much 10 meters before the finish line that she was going to win and she admits that she lost focus a little as she was smiling underwater as she swam to the finish.

Rebecca is hoping she gets in for the 2012 Olympics in London this year and is both nervous and excited for the tryouts. She does admit that one good thing is that she has won an Olympic Gold and no one can take that feeling away from her but we have our fingers crossed for her, and hope she can represent in 2012.

The full Kellogg's commercial airs on Friday July 27th during Opening Ceremonies.
