Missy Franklin made her return to the pool while bumping some Taylor Swift. That’s some good workout music if you ask us.
Being back in the pool after four months was incredible. I had a HUGE smile on my face the entire time because I was singing and dance-swimming to T-Swift’s new album thanks to my @AfterShokz Xtrainerz. The sound quality is unbelievable, even underwater! #ShokzSquad #Ad pic.twitter.com/jGcOR5Zy6T— Missy Franklin Johnson (@missyfranklin) August 6, 2020
