An Olympic star is born in these London games. It’s 17-year-old Missy Franklin. I’m a huge fan of the Olympic games, and I’ve have been watching as much as I can. I was so happy that one of the competitions I caught was women’s swimming with Missy Franklin. Wow! For being so young she is something else! And she’s super tall, 6-foot-1!
Missy has already won Gold and Bronze medals, and she’s has the chance to strike Gold again! The Olympian swimmer goes by the nickname Missy the Missile , and she compete’s tonight (Tuesday) for the 200 M freestyle final. Many are saying she can take home the Gold in this race.
