Dara Torres Is Among 2008 Olympic Hopefuls

Get Motivated: 41-Year-Old Swimmer Goes For Olympic Gold

Need a little motivation to get off your butt these days? How about Dara Torres? This Olympic swimmer is coming out of retirement for hopes at swimming in the Olympics this August. Not only is Torres a new mom, but she's 41 and if she makes the team, she'll be the oldest swimmer to compete in the Olympics, ever. If Torres makes it to the games this August, it will mark 24 years since she competed in her first Olympic games. Check her out.

How cool is that? The swimming trials are going on now and I'm cheering Torres on! She's so inspiring in fitness and in life. Now I've got the itch to hit the pool! What about you?
