Lilly King stole the spotlight in the Olympics on Sunday night with a finger wag seen around the world. She followed it up on Monday by winning gold on Monday night in the 100-meter backstroke, downing controversial Russian Yulia Efimova, who had twice tested positive for banned substances.

After her victory, fellow Indiana Hoosiers around the globe reacted to her win and showed their Indiana spirit.
