Dara Torres: Age is Just a Number
In Age Is Just a Number, Dara Torres reveals how the dream of an Olympic comeback in 2008 first came to her — when she was months into her first hard-won pregnancy. With humor and candor, Dara recounts how she returned to serious training —while nursing her infant daughter and contending with her beloved father’s long battle with cancer.

Dara talks frankly about diving back in for this comeback; about being an older athlete in a younger athletes’ game; about competition, doubt, and belief; about working through pain and uncertainty; and finally, about seizing the moment and, most important, never giving up. A truly self-made legend, the story of this five-time Olympian will resonate with women of all ages, and with anyone daring to entertain a seemingly impossible dream.
