PLAYERS: Dara Torres
Dara Torres is all about being fast - in the water, during workouts, when she talks and even when she's just hanging out. The sprinter who turns 45 next month is finding it slower going these days as she attempts yet another comeback in pursuit of making her sixth Olympic swim team this summer. Torres took 16 months off for major surgery on her left knee after winning three silver medals at the 2008 Beijing Games. That would seem to be a blip compared to the seven years she was retired between the 1992 and 2000 Olympics. But the added years and additional wear-and-tear on her body have taken a toll.
