Kudos to Missy Franklin, Rising Star in USA Swimming

In a day and age when athletes are known more for their ego than their craft, Missy Franklin is a breath of fresh air. Full of optimism and spunk, the world watched as she set a new record in the women’s 100m backstroke final, and was moved to tears as her country’s national anthem played atop the Olympic podium. All that, and she’s only 17! If London 2012 is a glimpse into the post-Phelps world, then it’s looking like a bright future for Team USA!
