To me, Dara Torres represents everything that sports should be. She’s competitive, dignified, tough, smart, independent, clean, and innovative. She’s puts herself out as a role model but not as a corporate prop, or a brand, or a reality show, or some artificial construct existing just to make more money. She does have a new book out on fitness… but really I just used that an excuse for me to talk to her again. Because I think she should be heard more and often. Here, as usual, she does not disappoint.
