Dara Torres (46) -- Not only has Torres competed in five different Olympics (spanning from 1984 to 2008), at 41 she became the oldest swimmer ever to earn a spot on the U.S. Olympic team in Beijing. At the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials, she placed fourth in the 50-meter freestyle, just 0.32 of a second behind the winner, Jessica Hardy.
