The 2016 Olympic games in Rio are right around the corner and former Regis Jesuit standout Missy Franklin couldn't be more excited.
In a press conference on Sunday at the Team USA training camp media day, Franklin spoke of the honor that she felt representing the United States once again.
"It is the greatest honor there is," Franklin said. "Especially with everything going on in our world right now, too. I think it's the perfect time for an Olympics with the way it brings everyone together and brings countries' pride. I have so much love for our country and I think it's a different way for us to represent our country."
At the 2012 games in London, Franklin came away with four gold medals to go with one bronze. She set a world record in the 200-meter backstroke with a time of 2:04.06.
Even more impressive is that Franklin competed in the 2012 games prior to entering her senior year at Regis Jesuit.
