Missy Franklin, 2012 four-time Olympic gold medalist, is enjoying the post Olympic Games honeymoon like the pros, though she remains an amature with her sights set on competing in college.
For this high school teen, swimming fame translates into star friendships. Franklin’s favorite star is Justin Bieber, and she got a special delivery from the uber singing sensation, a care package.
“He sent me a huge care package, which was so awesome,” Franklin told The Today Show. “I walk home and my mom is so cute. She took everything out and set it out on the table, and I had T-shirts and CDs and posters and all that stuff.”
Franklin plans to catch up with Bieber during his Denver tour stop in January.
“My friend actually bought me tickets for my birthday,” Franklin explained, “so we’re going to go, and I think we might be able to get backstage passes hopefully.”
Franklin broke more Olympic honeymoon news on The Today Show. The high school senior will make a cameo in the new comedy, The Intern, starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. The film’s highly anticipated because of Vaughn and Wilson’s pairing in Wedding Crashers, a huge box office success.
