Missy Franklin‘s newest honor is being named on a list with Justin Bieber and Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

TIME magazine tapped the 18-year-old swim superstar as one of its 16 most influential teens for 2013.

It’s the latest in a line of recent accomplishments for Franklin, who won four gold medals and one bronze at the 2012 Olympics.

In the last three months, Franklin became the first woman to win six gold medals at a single World Championships and was named the Women’s Sports Foundation Sportswoman of the Year.

She also enrolled at the University of California, began her collegiate swimming career and fit in an appearance at the U.S. Open’s Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day in between.

More honors are on the way. Franklin is up for a few more awards at the Golden Goggles, which are Nov. 24 in Los Angeles.
