VIDEO INTERVIEW: Missy Franklin Press Conference at PSS-Orlando

2016 Orlando Pro Swim Series

Below, courtesy of USA Swimming, Missy Franklin talks to the press ahead of the Orlando Pro Series.


Franklin discusses her form, and says in Austin she was very tired and wasn’t happy with her results, but has been feeling good in practice recently and has a bit of rest coming into this meet.

She is questioned on the pressure she feels heading into the Olympics after such a successful performance four years ago, and Missy simply exudes the excitement she has for this summer and how she’s going to use what she learned in London to help guide her through Rio.

She also discusses Michael Phelps, life as a pro, and her upcoming book she is writing with her parents.
