Years are not a limit - level 2
Dara Torres is 44 years old and she wants to be at the Olympic Games 2012 in London. She is a professional swimmer. She was at her first Olympic Games in 1984 when she was only 17.
She could stay at home and relax. She has 12 Olympic medals, 4 gold, 4 silver, 4 bronze. But she missed swimming very much.
She took a break last year but now she wants to swim again. She likes it very much. It’s adrenalin for her.
She won 3 silver medals in China in 2008 when she was 40 years old. Now she wants to be ready for London 2012.
