AUSTIN, Texas, December 1. MISSY Franklin had a memorable day, and not just in the pool at the 2012 USA Swimming winter nationals. In addition to her fast swims in Austin, she talks about the honor of earning her first World Female Swimmer of the Year from Swimming World Magazine.
Franklin nearly broke Elizabeth Pelton's American record in the 200-yard backstroke tonight, and talks about the excitement she feels about working on the details she'll need to focus on in order to break the record. She also said she enjoys the task of swimming back-to-back events, as she did tonight, and how she is able to get physically and mentally ready for each race.
