How old is she again? I sure wish the announcers would mention her age once in awhile to put her victories into perspective. Dara Torres is 41. It is really amazing how she can, at age 41, swim so well. I mean, considering 41 is a full 24 years older than she was in her first Olympics, it's a truly remarkable story. At 41, she is twice as old as many of her competitors and nearly three times as old as she was when she set her first American record (15).Let's think about this a little more. I mean, Dara Torres is 41 years old! When I was 41, well...I'll let you know in 5 years what being 41 is like...In all seriousness, it is an amazing accomplishment. You are right that the announcers latched on to this and took it way overboard, but that is what they do. And if you think it was bad THIS week, imagine what it will be like during the Olympics. And if she medals...watch out!Acme
