The wisdom of age

without comments

 

“When I was young, I was a natural athlete, but undisciplined. In my prime the pressure of performing up to other people’s expectations sometimes got the better of me. Now that I was older, I felt capable of making the most of my talent — focusing more when I was in the pool, and taking better care of my body. Age, for me, was a positive factor. Physically I felt strong, and mentally I was more mature.”

~ Dara Torres, on her second comeback at 33, 8 years later.
