Missy Franklin Biography
Melissa Jeanette Franklin (b. May 10, 1995 [Pasadena, California])
Parents : [father - Richard Franklin] and [mother - D.A. Franklin, MD]

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.

Ironically, DA says she grew up afraid of the water.
