USA Swimming Olympic Roster 2016: Meet the Team for Rio

Missy Franklin


Event: Women's 200m Free, Women's 200m Back


Easily one of the brightest stars of the 2012 London Olympics, Franklin racked up four gold medals (100m backstroke, 200m backstroke, 800m freestyle relay, 400m medley relay) and a bronze (400m freestyle relay). Four years later, she has struggled to fully recapture that form (she failed to qualify in the 100m backstroke), but she's going to Rio nonetheless after finishing second behind Katie Ledecky in the 200m freestyle on Thursday. She finished fourth in that event in London. (Getty)
