Dara Torres broke barriers when she competed in her 5th Games and became the oldest swimmer to compete in the Olympics in 2008. Not only did she compete, but she brought home three silver medals - including the infamous heartbreaking 50-meter freesyle race where she missed the Gold by 1/100th of a second. America loved her all the more for her astonishing achievement and her good-natured acceptance of the results.
Aside from her amazing accomplishments in the pool, Dara has talents on dry land as well. She released a 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 in the month of June. Her second book, "Gold Medal Fitness: A Revolutionary 5-Week Program," was released in May 2010. 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.
Dara is also a mother an role model to her young daughter and to all working mothers. She is the worldwide spokesperson for McDonald's "Champions of Play" Campagn which encourages a balanced approach to nutrition and activity for children.
Dara's health and fitness goals revolve around three pillars: what she puts into her body, what she does with her body and how she recovers. These pillars extend into her brand and sponsorship alignments. Currently training for her 6th Olympic Games, Olympian, author, mother, and role model, Dara Torres is many things to many people, but above all she is an inspiration.
