Olympian Missy Franklin returns to pool where she learned how to swim

At the Greenwood Athletic Club, Olympic champion Missy Franklin is sitting right next to the same pool she learned to swim in as a child.

“This is the pool where I first learned how to swim,” said Franklin.

A few years have passed since then and in those years Missy has swam a long way. At the 2012 Olympics she took home 5 medals, 4 of those gold. It helped to make her one of the biggest names heading into the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, a much different experience than the last time she was preparing for the games.

“The run up to London was very different than what I am experiencing now before Rio,” said Franklin.
