She is the best ambassador to swimming, even better than Phelps was, in my opinion.

So true. Missy always has a smile and is so gracious and generous with her fans.

But in our sport we are lucky. Most of our “SuperStars” are happy to be recognized and usually take a few minutes to interact with the kids on deck. Great role models for our youth.
