Missy Franklin is one of the most talented swimmers in the world. She is a four-time Olympic gold medalist and currently holds the world record in the 200-meter backstroke and American records in both the 100-meter and 200-meter backstroke. She was Swimming World’s World Swimmer of the Year and the American Swimmer of the Year in 2012. This story tells of her rise in fame and humbleness in the sport.

My thoughts: (review by Jenna) SWIMMING WITH FAITH: THE MISSY FRANKLIN STORY is an awesome book on ... I cannot get over how many gold medals she won starting at age seventeen! She started swimming when she was five and she just flew through swimming since she knew what she wanted at a very very young age. It's like God equipped her body with everything she needed to swim with really large feet for a woman, really large hands and she's really tall too. I loved this book and recommend it for anyone who needs a boost of encouragement.  A great biography! 5 stars!
