Inside Out- “After young Riley is uprooted from her Midwest life and moved to San Francisco, her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness – conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house, and school.” -IMDB.com. (Perfect for kids.)
Franklin, who was raised in Centennial, Colorado began swimming competitively at the age of five and competed in her first international event at the age of 14. In 2011, she established herself as one of the top swimmers in the world when she won five medals – three of them gold – at the 2011 FINA World Championships in Shanghai.
At the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Franklin won four gold medals and one bronze medal. Franklin’s performance in the 200-meter backstroke broke the world record in the event and also marked the first time that an American had won the event in 40 years.
She followed her Olympic success by winning six gold medals at the 2013 FINA World Championships in Barcelona, becoming the most-decorated female swimmer in history at a single World Championships. In 2014, Touch the Wall, a documentary following her life and preparation for the Olympics, was released with two thumbs up from swimmers and non-swimmers alike.
A member of the U.S. National Team, Franklin competed at UC-Berkeley before turning professional. While there, she earned four individual NCAA titles and helped Cal win the 2015 NCAA Women’s Division I Swimming and Diving Team Championship. She was also awarded the 2015 Collegiate Woman of the Year and awarded the Honda Cup for her collegiate athletic achievements. Following the 2015 World Championships in Russia, Franklin owns more World Championship titles than any female swimmer in history.
Recognized for her bright smile and engaging personality, Franklin has been named “World Swimmer of the Year and American Swimmer of the Year by Swimming World Magazine and earned the ESPY for Best Female Olympian in 2013 and Best Female College Athlete in 2015.
Franklin brought home another gold medal from the 2016 Rio Olympics for her performance in the 4 x 200 relay. She is currently working toward a degree in psychology and a minor in education at The University of Georgia.
Missy has been open in sharing her mental health struggles and spreading awareness through her extensive platforms. We are honored to present with her with the Spotlight Award for her extraordinary work to bring awareness to mental health.
