Get Motivated: 41-Year-Old Swimmer Goes for Olympic Gold: Need a little motivation to get off your butt these days? How about Dara Torres? This Olympic swimmer is coming out of retirement for hopes at swimming in the Olympics this August. Not only is Torres a new mom, but she's 41 and if she makes the team, she'll be the oldest swimmer to compete in the Olympics, ever.
In China, the Olympics are such a big deal that parents are naming their children after them!
Nearly 3,500 children (mostly male) were named Aoyun, meaning Olympics, back in 2000 when China was a contender to host the games. An additional 4,000 are named after the five Olympic Beijing Game mascots, the Five Friendlies. The names are Bei Bei, Jing Jing, Huan Huan, Ying Ying, and Ni Ni. When all five names are put together, it translates to "Beijing welcomes you."
