Representing the USA in four events, including the 50 and 100 meter freestyle, will be Dana Torres – back for her fifth showing at the Olympics (from the NYT):
Torres had secured a berth on her fifth Olympic team Friday with a victory in the 100 freestyle. Her time of 53.78, remarkable for a 41-year-old mother of a 2-year-old, is nearly a half-second slower than the third-fastest time in the world this year.
She is simply an amazing, amazing swimmer. One to watch for sure.
