You're never too old for Girl Power!

Granted, sports isn't really "our thing" here at Getting Underneath, but we just encountered an Olympic story that should make every female stand up and cheer.

Yesterday American swimmer Dara Torres—a 41-year-old mom—proved she's still got it by qualifying for her fifth Olympic games at the U.S Trials.

Oh, yeah, and she also won the 50-meter and 100-meter finals, blazing past swimmers half her age.

Oh, and that 50-meter finish? New U.S. record, people.

And she's just getting started. "I can't sit here and lie and say, 'Oh, I'm just glad I'm going,' " she told the press after the competition. "I want a medal."

If guts has anything to do with it, she's sure to walk away with one.
