Dara Torres: Making Mommas proud
Torres, who broke the 50m and 100m American marks, is beating out swimmers half her age to earn a spot on the Olympic team for an unprecedented fifth time. This Florida Gator is an inspiration for 40-something women everywhere but it's especially sweet for us Mommas.
After having her daughter Tessa Grace in 2006, she decided that she just couldn't stay out of the pool. A year later, she won a national title and broke her own record. Now she's on her way to Beijing. It's just like a Momma to put her mind to something and just do it. Go Momma!
