VIDEO: Eric Decker Surprises Missy Franklin At Olympic Send-off

Missy Franklin attends Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora, CO, and is on her way to becoming an Olympian this summer in London should she be named to the swim team. Just the other day, the school's Senior Send-off turned into an Olympic Send-off as Franklin was honored for her future pursuit of gold medals in London this August.

One other surprise awaited: Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker came out to wish her luck in her endeavors this summer. Check out the video of it below:


And, as we saw at the end, Franklin broke out "the worm" and danced. I don't know if she'd get a medal for that, but there are plenty waiting for her across the pond in England later this summer.

The U.S. Olympic Swim Team trials take place June 25-July 2 in Omaha, NE, where Franklin will compete for a spot on the U.S. team for the August London Olympics. For more on this event, please check out USA Swimming's official site.
