She won the 200 backstroke by nearly 3 seconds in 2:07.14, about 2 seconds slower than the gold medal finish she had at the worlds this summer.
"My first 50, I tried to stay really strong and have a good feel for the water," Franklin said. "In my second 50, I knew I had to pick it up. My last 100 is always my favorite part. I just try to get my arms and legs going as fast as I can."
Franklin hopes to improve her times in the freestyle. She took second in the 100 and 200 this weekend.
"Backstroke is my bread and butter, but from a relay perspective for the national team, I really have to keep my freestyles up just to keep what my teammates need me to do next summer," she said. "I definitely want to get better."
