Missy Franklin in Rio Olympics: 5 Time Olympic Medalist's Boyfriend? Is She Dating With Ryan Lochte?
Missy Franklin is legend and Mermaid. For the matter of fact, she has five Olympic gold medals and is also a world record holder. Apart from that, this bubbly girl has always been choosy when it comes to a matter of boyfriend. Interestingly, she has always been dating some of her own profession. What's the matter?
Is she Dating, Boyfriend?
There have been lots of speculations about who is Missy Franklin’s boyfriend. During the time of the 2012 Olympics, Missy and John had been dating, but it lasted for less than a year. The couple met because their swimming groups used to swim one right after the other and it all started there. It is quite interesting that Missy had been dating someone of own faculty Although Martens wasn't that of her caliber.
Later, Martens also said.
“We try to support each other. If we had a bad practice or a bad meet we try to bring each other back up, to tell each other to focus. It’s only one bad day. You can work through it. Just that type of positive attitude.”
We do not if she and John are still together. However, she was also spotted with 12-time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte. Missy had also posted an Instagram post in Ryan’s birthday. Who knows? There might be something between them.
Rio Olympics 2016:
Rio Olympics hasn’t been that great for this legendary player. It didn’t end like London Olympics in 2012 with Medals around her neck and people applauding her effort. This different, demoralizing experience for this champion ended with one last unspectacular swim along with a heartfelt hug from teammate Maya DiRado and one more probably last inglorious exit from the competition.
“I always had this idea in my head of the person that I wanted to be when I was going through challenges and, to be blatantly honest, when I was 17 I had never been through any (real) challenges,” Franklin, 21, expressed her feelings before the U.S. Olympic trials began.
“My career had been up and up and up. I had a wonderful family, a wonderful life. I had never really struggled before, in my own way but nothing compared to what I had been through the last couple of years. I feel like I have this new wisdom that I've gained throughout the successes and the challenges of the past four years. Having experienced that, it makes you feel more mature in a way. Walking around, I feel like I can almost hold my head a little bit higher knowing I've been through all of this.”
It was that time in London Olympics in 2012 where she held the world record in the 200-meter backstroke (long course) and American records in both the 100-meter and 200-meter backstroke (long course). And now four years later time has changed. This time, it was Rio Olympics 200-meter backstroke semifinals. Franklin finished 14th in an event where she holds the world record. That’s how far Apple has fallen from the tree.
Franklin was qualified for the American team in only two individual events for finals, the 200 freestyle, and 200 backstrokes, and the result she failed to make the top eight in either of the events. She won gold for a semifinal leg on the U.S. 800 freestyle relay Thursday, but more is expected from this legendary player.
When asked what she’s learned from the adversity she’s dealt with throughout 2016 by Yahoo sports, she said,
“I’ll let you know in a couple weeks. Right now it sucks. It’s hard right now, probably the hardest thing I’ve had to go through.”
