Missy Franklin, MSAA's Swim for MS Ambassador
is now an official member of the 2012 USA Olympic Swim Team and 
will be competing in seven events - the most ever for a US female 
swimmer - in the London 2012 Olympic Games!

During the USA Olympic Team Trials in Omaha, Nebraska this past week, 
Missy competed in four events, including:
  • 100m and 200m backstroke
  • 100m and 200m freestyle
Missy's time of 2:06.12 in the 200m backstroke was the fastest time
in the world this year!

Over the next four weeks Missy will be practicing with the US Olympic 
Swim Team in preparation for the Games of the XXX Olympiad from 
London, which begin on July 27 with the Opening Ceremony and 
conclude with the Closing Ceremony on Sunday, August 12
MSAA will be posting all of the dates and times of Missy's races when 
they become available.

As a great way to show patriotism, cheer on Missy, and help support 
MSAA, we are encouraging volunteers to 
host a Swim for MS Pool Party
