It's safe to say most teenage girls would be thrilled to receive a care package from pop star Justin Bieber but for a U.S. Olympian, it could have cost her a gold medal!

In a recent interview, U.S. gold medalist Missy Franklin says she returned a care package, sent from the pop star, full of T-shirts, pictures and posters.

The presents were sent after she won four medals in swimming during the London Summer Olympics.

"Huge shout out to @justinbieber for sending me all this amazing stuff! Thank you so much! Can't wait for the concert!" she tweeted along with a picture of the loot.

She says the gifts are considered a form of special treatment and could have jeopardized her status as an amateur athlete.
