Two-time Olympian Rebecca Adlington took to Twitter on Monday night in distress, tweeting that her Olympic medals had been stolen during a burglary. The retired 24-year-old British swimmer won two gold medals at the Beijing Games and two bronze in London.

Fortunately, Adlington later tweeted that the medals were found although a car remained missing. Adlington tweeted about the burglary and even fired back at responses she received joking about the burglary (it's the Internet so of course there were negative responses).
