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.
