The opening night of swimming worlds saw Americans medal in all four finals, including the debut of Missy Franklin who took gold in the women's 100m backstroke. The four-time Olympic champion returns on Wednesday to the pool for the final of the 200 freestyle, an event she failed to medal in at London. She should medal this time, but she’s up against stiff competition for gold in two-time defending world champion and top seed Federica Pellegrini and France’s Camille Muffat, who has the fastest time this year. Franklin is two for two in golds at worlds thus far.
