The Missy Franklin Family
Melissa Franklin with her parents Dick and D.A. Franklin, MD
Olympic swimmer, Missy Franklin is America’s sweetheart inside and out of the pool. The Missy Franklin family has cheered her on to the Olympics and is sharing her with the world in London. Born in America to Canadian parents, Missy is the daughter of a former professional football player, Dick Franklin and an accomplished medical doctor.
Her mother introduced Missy to water during a Mommy and Me swimming class when she was only 6 months old. Her happy smiling baby now trains in the same Colorado gym as football player Tim Tebow and is setting records at the Olympics. Who are the members of the Missy Franklin family tree that provide the foundation for Missy to be such a successful swimmer?

The Missy Franklin biography begins with her birth in Pascedena, California. Her parents immigrated to the United States from Canada before giving birth to Missy. Eventually Missy made her hometown, Centennial, Colorado. Missy has trained with Coach Todd Schmitz at the Colorado Stars Swim Club ever since she was seven years old. Missy’s parents remained determined to make swimming secondary, so Missy could enjoy a normal childhood. While other prodigy swimmers flock to swim states like Florida, Missy remains in Colorado. This recipe for producing world class swimmer paid off.
At the 2012 London Olympics, Missy earned the nickname, ”The Missile” while she smashed multiple world records with her explosive backstroke. Everyone is excited to see these teenage swimming phenomena will decorate her neck with many more gold medals.
