Dara Torres isn’t the only older mom competing in the Olympics, and this week Dana and Helen of Mombian.com tell you about some more of them. Several are previous medalists and two managed to have three kids each in between Olympic appearances.
In a heartbreaking story, one mother even needed to keep competing in order to raise money for her son’s leukemia treatments. Another took a five-year break because of an injury and to have a family, but got back into training and made the 2008 team. An inspiration? Yes, but what if her politics make her less than supportive of LGBT families? Dana and Helen discuss.
