Jessica Hardy, Engaged Olympian, Finds Lost Ring With Help From Twitter

Twitter Saves The Day For Olympic Champ

Olympic champ Jessica Hardy won three World Championship medals on Sunday, and she also won back a prized possession -- her engagement ring.

The Long Beach, Calif. swimmer tweeted Sunday night that she'd given her backpack to a volunteer at the FINA World Championships in Barcelona, and had forgotten her engagement ring inside the bag.

Hardy's followers retweeted her request 545 times and soon the ring was found.

Hardy's fiancé, fellow swimmer Dominik Meichtry, tweeted this adorable photo of the couple after the ring had been located:

Hardy and Meichtry began dating in 2005 after meeting at the World Championships. The pair got engaged in March 2013 in Malibu, Calif. and will tie the knot in California in October.
