Australian swimmer James Magnussen has won an Olympic silver medal in the men’s 100m freestyle final. Magnussen finished a heart-breaking hundredth of a second behind gold medal champion, American Adrian Nathan.

Magnussen admitted earlier that he had to rethink his original cocky attitude in entering the London 2012 Olympics.

After Australia's 4x100m freestyle relay disaster, Magnussen reportedly suffered a bout of nerves. However the 21-year-old Aussie regained his swag for today’s final after yesterday qualifying fastest for the 100m freestyle final.

"To be honest, I came into these Olympics thinking I couldn't be beaten," Magnussen the ‘Missile’ said after his initial hiccup.

"It was probably the reality check I needed. Everyone tells you to expect that it's different and it is ... this is the Olympics. I've learnt from it.”

The London 2012 Aquatic Centre erupted in shouts of “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!” as Magnussen was announced Olympic silver medallist.
