ORLANDO, Florida, February 16. AFTER a tough weekend of racing last weekend in Colorado where she swam with a sore throat, Missy Franklin is swimming well in the Arena Grand Prix, including her fastest in-season swim in the 100 backstroke.
In this video interview with Swimming World's Tiffany Elias, Franklin talks about the joy of coming down to Florida to get in some crucial long course racing, which she doesn't get often in Colorado. And despite being sick last weekend and enduring a 500 freestyle at nearly 6,000 feet above sea level, it's obvious Franklin enjoyed the experience of her final high school meet.
Franklin also discusses her work with the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America and how a family member got her involved.
