The world's best chased gold in London. Look back at all the action.

Franklin, who is from Centennial, is among a dozen Olympic athletes from Colorado who will be honored during the opener.

Franklin won four gold medals and a bronze during the London Games last month.

Among the other Olympians who will be honored is Taylor Ritzel, a gold medalist rower whose grandfather is former Broncos coach Red Miller.
