Question of the Week

Built to swim!

by Missy (teehee) Wimbish

Yeah, maybe I’ll start insisting people call me ‘Missy’ in honor of the gold medalist Missy Franklin! Congratulations to my fellow Missy!!!!

One of the coolest things about Franklin is that her body was pretty much built for swimming. With size 13 feet and arms and legs as long as Pennsylvania, she moves through the water like a dolphin:

“[My] physique is definitely so helpful,” says Franklin. “My feet — my parents always say — are like my built-in flippers . . . I definitely don’t think I would be where I am in swimming without the body that I have. I am so blessed. I have height, the big feet, the big hands; I think all of that has helped me so much.”

If you were able to build a gold medal singer, what physical attributes would you include? A giant skull? Broad chest? Flowing red hair?
