Colorado Competes: Checking Back with Missy’s Dad

Listen Now

Our Olympic series “Colorado Competes” draws to a close today the way it began, with Richard Franklin, father of swimming superstar Missy Franklin. He first talked to us before the London Games about how quickly Missy took to the water as a baby, and about family vacations, which were most often spent sitting on concrete seats at swim meets. Missy Franklin won a total of five Olympic medals, which include four golds and a bronze. Ryan Warner speaks with Richard Franklin about London and what’s next for his daughter.
