Faith Fuels: Missy Franklin Swims on Solid Ground

<p><span>See how Olympic champ Missy Franklin learned to swim on solid ground.</span><br /><br /><span>"I remember the first time walking in here with my friends and I felt like I belonged. I felt like I had come home. I found total peace. I have never felt anything like that before. Religion wasn't a huge part of my childhood growing up, but faith isn't something that you're born with; it's something that you find.&nbsp;</span><br /><br /><span>"I had talent and drive and great coaches, but God gives me more. He gives me strength and confidence, and most importantly He keeps me grounded because I know that everything I've accomplished is because of Him. God is always there for me. I talk with Him before, during and after practices and competitions.&nbsp;</span><br /><br /><span>"I don't have to be in that same chapel to feel that peace. I found my faith there. Now I take it with me into every part of my life."</span></p>
