Franco also has a topless calender shot in 2007, pictures of which have circulated on the Internet and received countless page views since the Beijing Games have begun.
Franco competed at the 2004 Summer Olympics for Paraguay where she was 21st in Group A and finished 42nd overall. At the 2008 Summer Olympics Franco again competed in the javelin representing Paraguay, where she finished next-to-last at 51st. Had she done her personal best (55.38 m = 181′ 8 3/8″) she would have placed 36th. During the Games’ opening ceremony she garnered some media attention because of her good looks.
