Missy Franklin can add NCAA champion to her Olympic and world champion résumé in Minneapolis this week.
The four-time 2012 Olympic champion is slated to make her NCAA Championships debut for California beginning Thursday at the University of Minnesota.
She’s listed on psych sheets in the 100-yard, 200 and 500 freestyle events. Franklin, who swept the backstrokes at the London Olympics, has focused more on freestyle events in college, racing up to a distance of 1,000 yards.
She is the top seed in the 100 and 200 and second in the 500. Franklin swept these three races at the Pac-12 Championships three weeks ago, earning Swimmer of the Meet honors.
Here’s how you can watch the NCAA Championships, and here’s when you can watch Franklin in those events:
Thursday morning session (12 p.m. ET start) — 500 free prelims (second event)
Thursday evening session (8 p.m. ET start) — 500 free finals (second event)
Friday morning session (12 p.m. ET start) — 200 free prelims (fourth event)
Friday evening session (8 p.m. ET start) — 200 free finals (fourth event)
Saturday morning session (12 p.m. ET start) — 100 free prelims (second event)
Saturday evening session (8 p.m. ET start) — 100 free finals (third event)
Cal is looking to win its fourth national title in six years. Georgia clipped Cal in 2013.
Other Olympians are listed on psych sheets, including Cal teammate Rachel Bootsma (100 backstroke, 100 butterfly, 200 fly), Georgia’s Shannon Vreeland (100 free, 200 free, 500 free), Stanford’s Lia Neal (50 free, 100 free, 200 free) and Texas A&M’s Breeja Larson (50 free, 100 breaststroke, 200 breast).
