Former Olympic Champ Missy Franklin Weds Former UT Swimmer Hayes Johnson

Five-time Olympic champion Missy Franklin has married former Texas swimmer Hayes Johnson in suburban Denver.

The 24-year-old Franklin announced Saturday's wedding via Instagram.

The Colorado native won five medals, including four golds, as a 17-year-old at the 2012 London Olympics. She won a gold medal as part of a relay team in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro.

Franklin retired last year, citing chronic shoulder pain.
