Missy Franklin might turn down $50-70,000 to stay NCAA eligible


Ouch, read SwimmingWorld Magazine:

“Even if Franklin fades to second or third, she will be looking at bypassing anywhere from $50,000 to $70,000 in winnings to maintain NCAA eligibility. She has already compiled $21,500 in two meets, including a $10,000 world record bonus, that she will have to forgo to remain recruitable.”
