Missy Franklin: Golden Goggle Awards Winner!

Missy Franklin dolls up in head to toe gold as she arrives at the 2012 Golden Goggle Awards held at the Marriott Marquis Times Square on Monday night (November 19) in New York City.

The 17-year-old Olympic swimmer took home the Female Athlete of the Year honors, and Top Relay Performance with teammates Rebecca Soni, Dana Vollmer and Allison Schmitt for their 4×100 medley gold medal in world-record time.

“If I had anyone who swims high school come up to me and tell me they don’t want me to swim, I would absolutely not swim,” Missy shared about joining her high school swim team.

She continued, “But everyone who I’ve talked to has been so supportive of it. So it’s so hard when I have so many people that are really wanting me to do it and so supportive, and I have other people who are saying it’s not fair. ‘Why would you do this to other girls?’ And I feel so bad thinking that they would think that.”
