Some say that Michael Phelps racing eight events in the 2008 Beijing Olympics was an amazing feat, let alone winning all of those events.
What about a 17-year-old racing in seven events? Missy Franklin will do just that in London, setting herself up for possibly the most successful runs in Olympic history.
If that run does indeed come to fruition, it will be only three months removed from her 17th birthday.
Though her name is just now starting to make the rounds among casual Olympic fans, it's clear she will be one of the prime subjects of conversation during the Games.
If she stays on schedule, Franklin will participate in four individual events (100-meter and 200-meter races for both backstroke and freestyle), and also will represent the U.S. in three team races.
The fact that this is only an introduction to Franklin is what seems to bring the most amazement. The world-record holder in multiple races, Franklin could easily pull off two more Olympic runs before her time is up competing in the water.
But, it all starts in London. And it could start as the most dominating performance in women's Olympic swimming history.
Consider that the all-time record for women's swimming gold medals at the Olympics is eight, set by Jenny Thompson (though all her golds were on relay teams).
Franklin has her chance to put a very large dent in that record and, along with that, be the leading lady at this year's Olympics.
