0

Victory for Team USA in the women’s 4x100m Medley ensured Missy Franklin made history in Barcelona as the 15th FINA World Championships reached its conclusion. Franklin has won more FINA World Championship golds than any other female swimmer. Not only are her six gold medals the most won by any female swimmer in a single championships, but, when added to the three won in Shanghai two years ago, mean that she has now won more golds than any other woman in the history of the event with nine. The monumental achievement is made even more impressive by the fact that she is just 18 years old.
