MISSY FRANKLIN WINS ALL OF THE THINGS.

It took one day (ONE DAY) at the Mel Zajac Canada Cup for Missy Franklin to help the Bears win all of the things.

Despite Franklin placed first in the 200m free, the degree of her first-liness was almost disappointing by her aquatic standards. But the winning didn't stop there. In the 400m free relay, Franklin was called upon to be the pivotal final swimmer with the responsibility of catching up to the leading team, which was a full second ahead of Franklin. #nobigdeal as Franklin swam strong and brought the Bears the win!

Caitlin Leverenz had a big night with a win in the 400m IM finale, but the biggest individual win may belong tono surpriseMissy Franklin.

The Missile wasted little time in firing off tonight as she blitzed the women's 200-meter back in 2:09.57. That effort pushed Franklin to ninth in the SwimVortex world rankings, as she shoved aside Sinead Russell's 2:09.58 from Canadian Nationals.
