I don’t think we’ve ever visited the sport of diving before. I’ll mark this one in the swimming category in an attempt to keep clutter at a minimum (hmph, too late for that). Diving involves such artistry and grace. Not to mention precision. It’s not unlike gymnastics or ice skating in that it’s scored by judges who are looking carefully at every little nuance of movement and entry into the surface of the water. If you’ve never jumped from some terribly high platform into a body of water, it is an exhilarating experience. Climbing up can be nerve-wracking, but is nothing compared to standing at the top and looking down.

Note how this girl has her tongue stuck out. I’m guessing that means she is concentrating and terribly deep in back room of her mind where she can exert perfect control over her body. She better be careful or she’ll bite it right off! diver pic

Dara Torres

Dara Torres is the 42 year old mother who stunned the world by winning tons of Gold Medals as a swimmer at the Olympics not too long ago. Her fabulously fit body and her glowing smile have interested more than a few sponsors, and it helps that she’s in better shape now than she was when she was 20. Very inspirational to kids and adults alike. At 5’11”, Dara is one tall drink of water. And her legs could win a gold medal of their own in a hotness contest. She recently published a very popular book about how she has managed to conquer age.
