Missy Franklin Touch the Wall Documentary Breaks $110,000 Kickstarter Goal

It’s time to pay up. Count us among the 747 donors (as of posting) who contributed to the Kickstarter campaign for the makers of the Missy Franklin Touch the Wall documentary, and now that $110,000 has been reached, bank accounts will officially be debited and pledge prizes will flow. Most importantly, we’ll all get to see exactly what the Franklin family went through on the way to making one of the splashiest Olympic debuts in the history of sports.

Touch the Wall follows Missy Franklin, her coach Todd Schmitz, Kara Lynn Joyce, and her coach David Marsh, for over two years. The documentary focuses on Franklin’s rapid rise to swimming fame on the road to the 2012 London Olympic Games.

As soon as our prizes arrive, we’ll try and find a way to share some of them with our readers (though, we may have to fight Gold Medal Mel for the autographed cap – he’s a big fan).

The swimming community did an excellent job on this fundraiser, and we hope to continue bringing you previews of the film between now and its release date. To continue donating, see the Kickstarter campaign here (you’ve got 58 hours left!)
