(NECN: Marnie MacLean) - Maine has just one athlete competing in the London games, and Thursday, she brought home a gold medal.

Elle Logan is part of the Women's eight rowing team that turned in a gold medal performance during their race Thursday.

She was part of the team that won this same event in Beijing four years ago.

Elle is from the coastal Maine town of Boothbay Harbor. Most of her family traveled to London to watch her compete, but her Aunt Sarah stayed behind to mind the family store downtown.

Sarah Logan watched the race online and said she shed more than a few tears as her niece and the U.S. team crossed the finish line ahead of the competition.

When Elle won the gold medal four years ago she came home to Maine and was honored with a parade. Community members are hopeful she will come back to Maine again this time to show off gold medal number two!
