One amazing woman!



Dara Torres, the oldest female swimmer in Olympic history, settled for a silver medal in the 50-meter freestyle — missing gold by 1/100th of a second — and added her third silver medal of the Games by anchoring the 4x100 medley relay to a second-place finish to Australia.

It gave the 41-year-old mom her 12th career swimming medal, tying her with Jenny Thompson for the record for U.S. women. She became the oldest swimming medalist in history when she won silver in the 4x100 free relay earlier in the meet.

She is an amazing woman! Accomplishing this is amazing in itself. Imagine being a single mom with a 3 year old. She is to be commended on many fronts!

How right you are. What an amazing woman. I hope she gets tons of endorsements as a result.

She's amazing, but I still don't like it when the oldest woman in the olypmics is a full decade younger than me!
