Missy Franklin began her swimming career with swim lessons at just six months old, in part due her mother’s own fear of water. After a successful club and high school career, Franklin went on to compete in the 2012 London Summer Olympics, where she won five medals (four gold and one bronze). In the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, Missy Franklin rounded out her medal count with an additional gold medal in the 4 x 200 freestyle relay. She continues to hold the world record in both the 200-meter backstroke and 4 x 100-meter medley relay.
As a partner and ambassador to the SwimLabs team, Missy Franklin has been instrumental in initiating new ways to communicate and teach skill and technique to swimmers of all ages.
