Truly, Age Doesn't Matter!

At 41 years old, Dara Torres becomes the oldest swimmer to hit the Water Cube at the Beijing Olympics, but she proved many times that he can swim as fast, if not faster than the swimmers that are more than half of his age. Tonight, she finished silver medal with the 50-m freestyle final which she lost to Britta Steffen of Germany. It was a very sad lost because there was only a one-hundredth difference in time. Steffen finished at 24.06 while Torres end her swim at 24.07. Actually, the same story happened between Phelps and Cavic (of Serbia) last night which resulted to Phelps 7th gold medal. Although, Torres result didn't turn out the same with Phelps but to the heart of Americans, she is still a champion!

Take a look at Torres expression upon knowing that Steffen only won by one-hudredth time difference.
