Missy's New Life Swimming

In this Aug. 11, 2016 file photo United States' Missy Franklin wears gloves as she prepares for a women's 200-meter backstroke semifinal during the swimming competitions at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. After a dismal showing at the 2016 Rio Olympics, where she qualified in just two events and won her only medal as a morning relay swimmer, Franklin underwent surgery on both shoulders. She transferred from Cal to Georgia, hoping a change of scenery and working with Bauerle would help spur her comeback. Unfortunately, her shoulders continued to hurt. When doctors told her she could undergo another surgery, but there was a less than 50 percent chance it would relieve her pain in the pool, Franklin decided to retire. (AP Photo/Lee Jin-man, file)
