Nine-time Olympic medalist swimmer Dara Torres won the 100-meter freestyle at the U.S. Swimming Nationals Wednesday. At age 40, Torres has been an elite swimmer on the international scene for decades, besting competitors half her age.
Torres gave birth to her first child last year, but her body is now more lean than it has ever been. She says that has made it easier to move through the water. Her aim is to make the U.S. Olympic team for the 2008 games in Beijing.
