The WSJ article about Franklin's decision to keep her amateur status was pretty bland. This NYT article is a much better read. I think the writer wants you to conclue that not turning pro is part of her way of coping with the stress.

The 25th paragraph mentions a USMS forum member who posts regularily (though sometimes under different handles).

She needs to go pro if she wins 1 or 2 Olympic Gold Medals. Golds medals means cosmetic/hair endorsements for the ladies. She could still go to college. Phelps did.
