Athlete: Dara Torres Country: United States Sport: Swimming Sponsor: Speedo
Dara Torres is breaking records even out of the pool. She is the oldest American swimmer to compete at the Olympics, and Beijing will be her fifth trip to the international sporting event. At 41, Torres is shattering long-held assumptions that peak athletic performance is restricted to a certain age bracket. She will compete at the games in Speedo’s much-hyped LZR Racer, codesigned with Comme des Garçons.
