Wonder Women: Olympic Mamas

Wonder Women: Olympic Mamas

While much of the mama focus throughout the Olympics has been on 41-year-old swimmer Dara Torres, she is just one of 20 mothers on Team USA this Summer. Many of these gold medal moms claim that parenting has made them better athletes, often bringing them a new-found perspective on the importance of their sport in their lives. They juggle parenting with intense training regimens and robust travel schedules, leading us to marvel at how they manage it all.

The answer, as many of them confessed on the Today show this morning, is forgoing sleep. While a majority of you told us that you get between six to eight hours of sleep each night, these winning women often perform with minimal shut-eye in order to get the job done.

Tell us, since becoming a parent, what have you sacrificed in order to pursue your dream?
