Dara Torres broke barriers when she competed in her 5th Olympic Games and became the oldest swimmer to compete in the Olympics in 2008.
Aside from her amazing accomplishments in the pool, Dara has talents on dry land too. Now a top-selling author, her memoir, “Age is Just a Number: Achieve Your Dreams at Any Stage in Your Life,” published in April, 2009 and was listed as one of the top 25 best-selling business books by June. Her second book, “Gold Medal Fitness: A Revolutionary 5-Week Program” was released in May, 2010 and quickly became a New York Times best-seller. Dara also won the ESPY award for “Best Comeback” and was named one of the “Top Female Athletes of the Decade” by Sports Illustrated magazine.
Outside of the pool, Dara is just like you – she’s a mother, daughter, friend, workaholic, multi-tasker, believer, fighter and encourager.
