“Age is Just a Number”

Filed under: Sports — Porcupyn @ 9:25 am

The local library hosted five-time Olympian Dara Torres, and obviously, I had to go listen. Too bad Baab is not here right now; he would have loved to be there. Anyway, I got to record most of her motivational* talk (I hope there is no copyright on that; at least, the audience was not told not to record). Here is the first segment (all five segments are on YT):

Apologies for the relatively poor video; the emphasis, of course, is on the audio.

The audience loved her speech and, when I left, there was a really long line of kids queued up for autographs, book signing and photos.

* = Not that I am searching for motivation – my mother started her teaching career after she was 40, in the India of the 20th Century
