FILE - In this Aug. 8, 2016, file photo, United States' Missy Franklin reacts after placing last in a women's 200-meter freestyle semifinal during the swimming competitions at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. At 17, she was the darling of the Olympics, a bubbly teenager who swam in seven events at London and captured four golds and a bronze. Four years later, she barely qualified for the U.S. team, ceded a starring role to Katie Ledecky, and didn't come close to winning an individual medal. (AP Photo/Martin Meissner, File)
