Dara Torres is 41, a mother, and is off to an unprecedented fifth Olympics as a swimmer. It is a feat that impresses everybody — fans, the media and her fellow competitors. But it doesn’t impress the swimming pool.

“The water doesn’t know what age you are when you jump in,” the oldest woman ever to make the U.S. Olympic Swim Team told TODAY’s Matt Lauer Monday. “So why not?”



This woman inspires me. :love: I very seldom watch the olympics, but I will be cheering hard for her!

She is pretty incredible, Padme, I agree. She's more than twice as old as some of her competitors.

And she is a year older than me... :love: :love: She is an inspiration. And she has made it clear that she is drug tested because many say she is doping.

She is amazing. Michael Phelps who is 18 years younger than her, calls her Ma or something like that. Truly remarkable.
