Dara Torres won three silver medals in Beijing at age 41, serving as an inspiration to middle-aged people everywhere. But she couldn't possibly keep it up through the 2012 Games in London, could she?
Actually, she's not ruling it out. In an appearance on HBO's Costas Now, Torres said flatly that she is not retired, and that she might just be in the pool in London.
"You have to put it in perspective," Torres said. "I am 41. No one in their 40s has swum in the Olympic Games and medaled before."
