AURORA, Colo., Nov. 28 (UPI) -- Four-time Olympic gold medalist Missy Franklin will compete for her Aurora, Colo., high school swimming team this season, the school athletic director said.

Regis Jesuit High School's John Koslosky confirmed Franklin, with travel and appearance commitments after her success in the London Olympics, will participate in an abbreviated schedule with the team.

"She's doing this because of her team, her school and the other girls who swim in high school. And she wants to. They all want her here," he said.

Although the scholastic season begins Wednesday, Franklin's school swimming competitions will not begin until after the holidays, The Denver Post reported Wednesday.
