Laureus releases a video of Missy Franklin’s visit to Sri Lanka

Global swimming sensation and Laureus Sport for Good Foundation Ambassador Missy Franklin has spent time meeting and inspiring youngsters from the Laureus-supported Foundation of Goodness project in Sri Lanka.

During her visit, Missy took time to meet some aspiring young swimmers from the project, passing on her own personal swimming hints and tips and sharing her experiences of competing on the world stage. After the session, she reflected on her time in Sri Lanka:

“I’ve been so inspired by the people I’ve met and the things I’ve seen here in Seenigama. The Foundation of Goodness is a true embodiment of the Laureus message that sport has the power to change the world.”

“I’ve grown up knowing the importance of hard work and resilience in preparing to compete at the highest level in sport, but the resilience of these people, who suffered such loss and grief after the devastating Tsunami in 2004 is so inspirational for me. I won’t forget the smiling faces of the young children here.”

Laureus comprises the Laureus World Sports Academy, the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation and the Laureus World Sports Awards, which collectively harness the power of sport to promote social change (and celebrate sporting excellence).


The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation raises funds to provide financial and practical support to more than 150 projects which use the power of sport to provide coaching and education to young people in some of the most challenging or deprived environments around the world.
