An article about why America's current favorite female swimming sensation - Missy Franklin - has elected to remain an amateur and not go pro.
Miss Missy, who unlike the gross Ryan Lochte knows how to be gracious, has also elected to finish her senior year at the Jesuit high school she attends in Colorado.
In this interview, 'Pool Girl' explains how she's been preparing for the Olympics for the past ten years. Chlorine City!
Update: This story describes some of the sacrifices Missy's parents have made (like regularly awakening at 4 am to drive her to the pool), so she could become a world-class champion.
