I have a new hero, and I wasn’t even in the market for one.

Check out this amazing article about a 41-year-old woman who qualified for the US Olympic team. I’ve been out of the loop for sports a long time, longer still if you count when I quit playing basketball or swimming (we won’t count that varsity letter in badminton). Still, this woman’s story has intrigued me.

I’ll be checking her progress in Beijing, that’s for sure.
