Olympic Icon Dara Torres who is considered one of the greatest female competitive swimmers of all-time. She entered her first international swimming competition at age 14 and competed in her first Olympic Games a few years later in 1984.

At the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing, Dara became the oldest swimmer ever to compete in the Olympic Games at age 41. She took home 3 Silver Medals, including the heartbreaking 50-meter freestyle race where she missed another Gold Medal by a mere 1/100th of a second. America has fallen in love with Dara for her astonishing accomplishments and her composure in the face of defeat.
