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.
