The Baylor Swim Club will be hosting a private question and answer zoom meeting for its members and athletes with Olympic gold medalist Missy Franklin and Baylor School alumni Kristen Vredeveld. The zoom meeting session will take place on Thursday, July 2nd at 5:30 PM EDT.
Baylor Swim Club athletes are being asked to submit questions ahead of time for Missy and Kristen to answer during the allotted time. Franklin and Vredeveld have a unique bond, as they are great friends and were college roommates during their time swimming at the University of California at Berkley.
Missy Franklin is a five-time Olympic gold medalist and multiple world record-holder in the sport of swimming. Franklin became a household name during the 2012 Olympic Games in London when she won four gold medals and one bronze medal, becoming one of the most decorated athletes of the Games.
Kristen Vredeveld was an NCAA champion, member of USA Swimming’s National Junior team, US Olympic Trials qualifier (2012 & 2016), and multiple TISCA State Champion. At Baylor School, Vredeveld was a 16-time state champion and she set a 15-16 NAG record in the 50 freestyle. Vredeveld still holds school records in the 50 free, 100 free, and 200 free.
