Four-time Olympic gold medalist and American swimmer Missy Franklin has been announced as one of GoPro’s newest partners in their marketing campaign. Franklin will be using a GoPro device to film her training swims to get users excited about the capabilities of the camera as well as display the dedication it takes to be a professional swimmer as she prepares for this summer’s Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro. The two-part series will debut on April 11 and will detail some incredible footage both in and out of the water. GoPro will detail the point of view of the 20-year old champion and is bound to be a great promotion partnership for the both of them over the next few months.
The Pasadena, California-born Olympian grew up in the Denver, Colorado area and was first brought into stardom after her performance at the 2012 London games where she was a fast favorite for swimming fans. At just the age of 17, she was able to stun the world with her abilities and bring home some gold medals to her native country. Her successes have earned her Swimming World’s Swimmer of the Year Award, as well as the FINA Swimmer of the Year Award in both 2011 and 2012.
Franklin will be hitting the pool hard this spring and summer to prepare for the 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro, and fans will be able to get a up close and personal experience of her training thanks to GoPro’s latest technology.
