From Stephanie Stuart
US Olympic gymnast Shannon Miller will visit Franklin Middle School tomorrow, September 10 at 2:00 p.m. She is visiting the school due to Franklin becoming one of the first schools in the world to implement the new Polar Gofit Heart Rate Module. Shannon is spokesperson for Polar’s Education division and the goal of her visit is just to observe how the technology is used and benefits the students.
Miller was the 1993 and 1994 World All-Around Champion, the 1996 Olympics balance beam gold medalist, the 1995 Pan Am Games all-around champion, and a member of the gold medal-winning Magnificent Seven team at the Atlanta Olympics. The winner of a combined total of 16 World Championships and Olympic medals between 1991 and 1996, Miller ranks as the most decorated gymnast, male or female, in U.S. history. Miller was also the most successful American athlete, by medal count, at the 1992 Barcelona Games, winning five altogether. Shannon Miller is also the tenth most decorated gymnast of all time, by her individual medal count.
Media are welcome to attend this visit, so please feel free to contact Principal Sara Sanders who I have copied on this message.
