Swimming: Franklin’s big summer continues

Weeks before she enrolls for her freshman season at Cal, Olympic swim star Missy Franklin continues to dominate the FINA World Championships in Barcelona.

Franklin won her third gold medal of the meet on Wednesday, beating defending world champ Federica Pellegrini of Italy in the 200-meter freestyle final. She touched the wall in 1 minutes, 54.81 seconds.

Previously, Franklin won the 100 backstroke and the 400 free relay.
