IRVINE, California, August 7. SHORTLY after completing a tough double in the 200 freestyle and 200 backstroke, Missy Franklin stopped by the mixed zone to talk about racing Katie Ledecky and returning to backstroke after focusing on freestyle in the college season.

Ledecky has made Franklin’s approach to racing better, and in this video interview Franklin said she was also happy to see younger swimmers qualifying for international teams.
