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 just 17.

She could just stay at home and relax. She has 12 Olympic medals, 4 gold, 4 silver, 4 bronze. But she missed a competition very much.

She took a break last year but now she wants to compete again. She likes swimming 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 qualify for the London 2012.
