Missy Franklin on Justin Bieber: Olympic Swimmer No Longer a Belieber


Missy Franklin, a U.S. Olympic swimmer, used to be a big fan of Justin Bieber–but now she’s moved on.

Franklin famously spent the 2010 U.S. nationals dancing to Bieber’s music during warmups, and Bieber congratulated her on winning her first gold medal at the 2012 Olympics. He also sent a care package that included CDs and posters.

The pair met in person for the first time at one of Bieber’s concerts in January 2013.

But Bieber’s behavior this year has been causing some devout fans to turn away from him, and Franklin is no exception.

“I don’t agree with all of his life decisions lately, so I’ve moved on a little from that,” Franklin said Tuesday at a news conference before this year’s national championship meet, according to USA Today.
