Missy Franklin is the lady who showed her outstanding swimming skills in the London Olympics held in 2012. At the young age of 17, she was successful in holding four gold medals, breaking two world records.
Her outstanding performance had set a great impression on the viewer’s mind. But she could not meet up the expectation of the audience in Rio Olympics 2016. She was able to take a gold medal home, but this did not satisfy the audience.
How Much Is 5 Times Gold Medalist's Net Worth?
The outstanding swimmer has accumulated a net worth of 3 million dollars. The amount she has garnered is the result of her exceptional performance in the pool and the endorsements she has done.
She began swimming at the very young age of 2. With extensive training and her dedication, she managed to take four gold medals home. Her fame was in the greatest height of her career; she got praises from around the world for her outstanding performance. But the fame dropped immensely when she could not perform well in Rio Olympics 2016. She earned a gold medal for a tally in the 4x200m freestyle but failed to live up the audience’s expectation in individual rounds.
Talking about her performance in 2016, she said it was the year with perfect preparation and training. Her body was perfectly fit and ready to set the records, but her mind could not help her. Her mind was not in a perfect place to support her fit and trained body. This led to the downfall in her swimming career.
Talking about the depression she quotes,
“I think people sometimes forget that we're human too, and we have days when we're exhausted and not motivated and don't want to go to practice, and I think it's so important for young athletes to see that."
She suggests the young swimmers take care of their mental health along with physical training. The pressure that winning creates takes away your state of mind. So she recommends balancing the physical and mental aspect in every athlete’s life.
