Missy Franklin takes fourth in 200 freestyle
Missy Franklin failed to reach the podium for the first time at the London Olympics.
The senior-to-be at Regis Jesuit (Aurora, Colo.), who struck gold in the women's 100-meter backstroke on Monday and won bronze in the 4x100 freestyle relay on Saturday, finished fourth in the 200-meter freestyle on Tuesday.
Franklin is scheduled to compete in two more relays and two more individual events at the Games.
Allison Schmitt, 22, of the United States won gold and set an Olympic record in 1 minute, 53.61 seconds.
