Missy Franklin: Profile of an Olympic Dream That Could Come True
Missy Franklin has already set some U.S. swimming records, but she will look to add to those records in London.
Missy Franklin has a few more responsibilities than the average 17-year-old, mostly because she is tuning up to start chasing gold medals in the 2020 London Olympic Games. In fact, according to ESPN, Franklin has qualified to swim in more events at the Olympics than any female American swimmer ever has with seven.
Without a doubt the stage is set for this United States medal hopeful to blossom into an international superstar, and she certainly has the tools to do it. Her electric performance at the U.S. Olympic trials gave spectators a peak at what she is capable of, and Missy will look to build on that performance and improve those times even more to capture some hardware in England.
With composure and confidence of a much older swimmer, According to USASwimming.org, Franklin set a new American record in the 100-meter backstroke with a time of 58.85 seconds. Not bad for a girl who will enter her senior year of high school this fall. Despite the pressure of the Olympics and international media attention, Missy Franklin has maintained a cool demeanor. That demeanor will be tested when she jumps into the pool versus the world's best swimmers; her support structure, including her parents, will be there every step of the way to cheer her on when she starts to compete.
