Yeah, we Californians are pretty awesome, huh? Just count how many Olympic swimmers have come out of here.
From SB Nation Bay Area:
Franklin likes Cal for a number of reasons. Some of her Olympic teammates went to Cal, her idol Natalie Coughlin went to Cal, and her Olympic coach Teri McKeever went to Cal. The biggest competition might not come from another college (although the Trojans and the Bulldogs are considered very much in the hunt). Her choice likely hinges on whether she decides to turn pro.
