All eyes have been on Olympian golden boy Michael Phelps, but swimmer Dara Torres is in a league of her own. At 41, this mama is the oldest Olympian to ever compete in the aquatic races and this was her fifth time doing so.
After taking silver in the individual 50 meter freestyle and another silver in the 4x100 meter relay, Dara who has one child isn't thinking about how she'll celebrate, she's figuring out how to get back into mommy mode. She told reporters:
The other girls were talking about going backpacking or going to Bali, but I get back on Tuesday evening and on Wednesday morning I have to take my daughter to school and I have a list of school supplies I have to get.
Kudos to this mum for inspiring other women to shoot for the stars — she deserves a gold.
