Missy is not best swimmer in the world. Ye Shiewen is. She won IM

She is indeed, and often overlooked (I assume because she is from China or because of the suspicion that she’s doping).

Amazing split. The college guys must be scared to death of Conger- Just imagine what he’ll be going by his senior year….

I don’t think anyone is “scared to death “of conger, anymore then they were scared of Nolan, Youngquist,or Murphy.Athletes at that level don’t think like that, only non athletes and parents think that way.

Yes, I suppose you’re correct on that one, but they still have good reason to be concerned about him and Murphy.

so who had the best meet of the three stars? Ledecky..not your favorite, Missy. My point is there are other GREAT swimmers in the USA and all the focus shouldn’t go to Missy. She is a great swimmers no doubt and I am taking anything away from her.

And the rest of the world’s point is that there is much, much more to Missy Franklin than her swimming, which is why she gets more attention.
