It was only one step up the podium for Matt Grevers.

Just a massive one.

The native of Lake Forest, Ill., won his first individual Olympic gold medal. Grevers, a silver medalist four years ago in Beijing, won the 100-meter backstroke, in 52.16 seconds on Monday night at the Aquatic Centre.

Americans went 1-2.

Nick Thoman won the silver in 52.92, and Ryosuke Irie of Japan was third in 52.97.

It was an Olympic record time for 27-year-old Grevers, who also won two relay gold medals in 2008 at the Olympics.

“I feel incredible. It was something I wanted since I was 10 years old. I came so close in ‘08, getting silver,” Grevers said. “When Aaron Peirsol announced his retirement, I knew it was a great opportunity for me to step in those shoes and hopefully get a gold medal and I did it.”

Peirsol won this event in 2008.

Grevers, at first, was looking in the wrong spot for the seats of his mother, father and brother at the swimming venue.

“I think someone upgraded their seats,” he said. “I was looking for them in the top row because that’s where they were. It was empowering for me to see them there with me on the sidelines. It was awesome that I got to celebrate with them at the end. That was not for me, it was for the whole family.”

At first, Grevers did not realize that teammate Thomas had finished second.

“I must be selfish,” he said. “It took me a good 10 seconds to realize he got second and that’s something I should do right away. When I noticed it (on the scoreboard), the moment became that much more special.”
