Cool news from the MS Association of America (MSAA), headquartered in New Jersey.

Missy Franklin Makes USA Olympic Swim Team!
Missy Franklin, MSAA's Swim for MS Ambassador, is now an official member of the 2012 USA Olympic Swim Team and will be competing in seven events - the most ever for a US female swimmer - in the London 2012 Olympic Games!
During the USA Olympic Team Trials in Omaha, Nebraska this past week, Missy competed in four events, including:
  • 100m and 200m backstroke
  • 100m and 200m freestyle
  • Missy's time of 2:06.12 in the 200m backstroke was the fastest timein the world this year!
    Over the next four weeks Missy will be practicing with the US Olympic Swim Team in preparation for the Games of the XXX Olympiad from London, which begin on July 27 with the Opening Ceremony and conclude with the Closing Ceremony on Sunday, August 12. MSAA will be posting all of the dates and times of Missy's races when they become available.
    As a great way to show patriotism, cheer on Missy, and help support 
    MSAA, we are encouraging volunteers to 
    host a Swim for MS Pool Party  
    leading up to or during the Olympics. 
    Be sure to take pictures or videos and post them to MSAA's Facebook
    Twitter , or YouTube pages!

    The Swim for MS Pool Party is an offshoot of MSAA's popular
    Swim for MS  program. 
    The Pool Party is a one-day event volunteers host in their 
    own backyard or community pool.
