So the Olympics are well-underway, and everyone here at Clevver has spent PLENTY of time swooning over Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte, and Matt Grevers—but it's time we show the ladies some love, right?
With her stellar smile and energetic approach, 17 year old Missy Franklin is emerging as the darling of this year's athletic events—already sporting some gold and bronze hardware.
Thanks to our friends over at People.com, we have 4 fun facts for you guys to learn everything you need to know about this all-star swimmer!
NUMBER 1—Missy is genetically engineered for this sport! She's pretty tall, standing 6'1—she's also got size 13 feet and a 6'4 wingspan!
She told the Washington Post that that her physique is "definitely so helpful," and calls her feet "built in flippers."
NUMBER 2- She's got some FAMOUS fans! Justin Bieber, YES, JUSTIN BIEBER tweeted out "heard @FranklinMissy is a fan of mine. now im a fan of hers too. CONGRATS on winning GOLD! #muchlove
Another fan of hers? Fellow Olympian Michael Phelps! He's praised Missy for being "a stud" who "(always swims fast)."
NUMBER 3—She's hurt over the Colorado shooting massacre for a very specific reason.
Missy is from Centennial, Colorado, but explained, "Colorado in general is such a close state that when something like that happens we're all affected by it, no matter who it is. It's hitting very close to home."
She has even gone as far as dedicating her first Olympic gold medal to the victims of the Aurora tragedy—truly proving she's a girl with both tremendous heart and class.
NUMBER 4—Her other talents are limited, or so she says!
Missy told NBC that she's a terrible artist and has zero musical talents—so it's pretty safe to say she's sticking with swimming!
I mean, personally, I thought she did a great job in the Call me Maybe parody video, and now that we know Bieber is a fan of hers, I think a little collabo could be AMAZING, right!?!?
At any rate, we're certainly proud of Missy and think she is doing our country proud!
Let me know in the comments section who your favorite Olympian has been so far, and if you're like me and want to see a Bieber/Selena/Phelps/Missy Call me Maybe mashup video!?! Maybe!?
