Inspiration: Dara Torres, 41-Year-Old Olympic Swimmer Breaks Record

Forty-somethings never looked so good. Dara Torres, a nine-time Olympic medal winner, is headed to the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing.  I know I'll be cheering her on.  

Want some inspiration?  Just watch this video....then get to work.

Wow. She is a total inspiration. Thanks for posting this.

She is awesome. I couldn't help noting that the sponsor of the spot was...Oil of Olay. Not a coincidence, I think, considering its target audience.

Isn't she FANTASTIC?! I loved watching her in the Olympic trials. She's obviously very driven, but still has that easy, natural smile that let's you know she's doing exactly what she wants to be doing with her life.

Go, Dara!
