Missy Franklin Does It Again

Centennial Native Earns Spot In Women's 200 Freestyle

Seventeen-year-old Missy Franklin locked up another Olympic race, claiming the second 200 spot in 1:56.79. She rallied from fifth place at the first turn to take the runner-up position. Franklin already won the 100 backstroke and looks poised to have another huge performance in London, after breaking through at last year's worlds with five medals.

She's more excited about being on the 800 free relay.

"Relays are such a big part of what we do," Franklin said. "Being part of a team is so special."
