Years are not a limit - level 3
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.
