Dara Torres Scheduled For Hernia Surgery, Knee Surgeries Slated for Future

CORAL SPRINGS, Florida, August 26. DARA Torres will go under the knife this weekend as she has surgery to correct a hernia this Friday, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Originally, Torres knew she would need work on her knee as evidenced by several remarks regarding the injury during the 2009 World Championships held in Rome. Those surgeries are slated for September and October.

As recent as last week, Torres has been on the record as potentially shooting for the 2012 London Olympics. Currently 42 years old, Torres would continue to prove that she is ageless when it comes to the sport of swimming as she would be pushing the mid-40s by the time London comes around.
