Centennial's Missy Franklin has had a busy week, what with attending the Olympics closing ceremony in London and giving people a reason to watch the Tonight show for the first time in forever -- not to mention starting her senior year at Regis Jesuit High School. But she still managed to squeeze in a little tat time.

Here's a tweet Franklin shared yesterday:

And here's the photo that accompanied it:

Five Olympic rings, five medals. There's a certain symmetry to that.

Somehow, Regis managed to keep cameras out of the hallways and classrooms for Franklin's first day back on campus yesterday -- a contrast to her Colorado return earlier this week, when videographers greeted her at the airport and even in her neighborhood. As you'll see in the Fox31 clips below, she was unfailingly chipper and polite to everyone she encountered -- an achievement that only enhances those four golds and a bronze.

And she'll be in the local spotlight again tomorrow. Fox31 notes that Franklin will attend a community celebration at 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Centennial Center Park, 13050 East Peakview Avenue. Other local Olympians have also been invited, but you can bet Missy will be in the center ring, as it were.

Here are the aforementioned videos:

I have nothing but love and respect for you my friend,

but you are clearly wrong here in this case.

A 'Tramp Stamp', goes on the woman's lower back.

Not ALL  ink on woman are 'Tramp Stamps'...

Her's is VERY small and easily hid by ALL clothing

aside from her bathing suit.

I know she's getting annoying ALREADY,

and we are DYING for more GMD info, but worry not.

She will be soon forgotten once #18 takes the field.......



You're ridiculous! Missy Franklin is an amazing athlete and positive representation of Colorado after all the heartache our state has felt this summer. Find someone else to belittle, you’ve lost all credibility on that comment.
