Tori Franklin

Team USA Track & Field Triple Jumper

Oak Park, Illinois

tori franklin portraitTori Franklin is my name. Jumping far is my game. I am a professional triple jumper sponsored by Nike and I am the current Indoor and Outdoor American Record holder for the event. I dreamed of running track and field from a young age and was ecstatic to finally have a chance in the 6th grade. High jump remained my focus through Jr. High School until the horizontal jumps coach recognized my speed and long legs freshman year of high school. I went on to place 2nd at the State Championships my Sophomore and Senior year and became State Champion my Junior year.

From there I went on to continue my career at Michigan State University where I acquired the Indoor and Outdoor School records as well as the Big Ten Championship Records. I competed in multiple events in college. The 400m, 4x400m relay, the 200m, and the 4x100m relay. It wasn’t until I graduated in 2015 that I began to specialize in the triple jump.

I competed on my first senior team at the 2017 Outdoor World Championships in London where I placed 13th, just barely missing out on finals. The following indoor season I placed 9th at the 2018 Indoor World Championship meet in Birmingham, England. This season I am so excited to continue to build onto this success. Pushing the limits. I aspire to be the first American Woman to medal at the 2020 Olympic Games.

I am incredibly grateful to NOW® for joining me on this journey and welcoming me into their family. I know these products will make a huge impact on my overall health so that I may soar in the coming years.
