DENVER (AP) – Olympic swimmer Missy Franklin is adjusting to a new normal after winning five medals at the 2012 Games in London.

Franklin has become a celebrity in her home state after winning four gold medals and a bronze last month. She is throwing out the first pitch at the Colorado Rockies game Saturday night. Two weeks ago she was introduced before the Denver Broncos home opener.
