Tori Franklin remembers when the last thing on Earth she wanted to do was the triple jump. As a high school freshman in suburban Chicago, Franklin preferred the pole vault, but her high school coach kept suggesting a different competition, one built a little more on her speed. After a while, she relented and gave it a shot. Now, she owns a triple-jump American record. And she’s headed to the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
