|Amanda Beard and Dara Torres are polar opposites. Amanda broke a record at the age of 14 and at 41 years old Dara Torres will also break a record this year at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. In honour of these two great women I have compiled 3 of their most memorable quotes.
Amanda is a 7-Time Olympic Medalist Rays Drew Smyly Jersey , a model with numerous magazine covers, and a national spokesperson for various companies. Amanda Beard became the second-youngest gold medalist in USA Swimming history (only Pokey Watson was younger than Amanda in 1964 winning the 400m free relay gold at 14 years and 96 days old) by winning her first Olympic gold, swimming on the medley relay. She is also a five-time U.S. national champion and has set an American record in the 200m breaststroke during a World Cup in 2002. Amanda Beard will be entering her 4th Olympic Games this summer in Beijing.
1 - ?I concentrate on preparing to swim my race and let the other swimmers think about me, not me about them.?
2 - "When I look back on it, it's fuzzy - like a dream. I can't really remember everything; it's just like a childhood memory to me. I didn't know too much about what was going on Rays Derek Norris Jersey , I just kind of swam. Sure, there was publicity going on about me being so young, and it's really weird to be 14 and have all that stuff happening to you, but then again, you're so young and childish you sort of blow it off." (on her 1996 Olympic experience)
3 - ?I hope that looking back at my career and as other people look back at my career I hope that I?ve opened a lot of doors and opportunities for other people. I know a lot of people get on my case a lot because I?ve done a lot of things outside of the pool I?m trying to open doors I?m trying to create more interest in swimming and bring more sponsors into the sport so swimmers that are coming up behind me can have a career in it.?
Dara Torres is the first American swimmer to compete at four Olympic Games and has racked up a total of nine Olympic medals - 4 gold Rays Corey Dickerson Jersey , 1 silver, and 4 bronze. Dara successfully competed at the 1984, 88, 92 and again at the 2000 Olympic Games. She is now breaking her own record with her 5th Olympic Games in Beijing this summer.
1 - ?The water doesn't know what age you are when you jump in, so why not?? (commenting on entering her fifth Olympics at age 41)
2 - ?They may become harder to achieve Rays Colby Rasmus Jersey , but your dreams can't stop because you've hit a certain age or you've had a child.?
3 - ?When I first started, people said I was an inspiration, but I think it?s been a complete 180 turn. I have so many people coming up to me now and telling me about their stories and what?s changed in their lives, and I feel like I?m getting inspiration from other people.?
I?ll be supporting both swimmers back here at home and wishing them luck this summer at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

CHINESE director Vivian Qu hopes her new film “Angels Wear White” (“Jia Nian Hua”) will generate a discussion on sex education and child protection in her home country, she said at the Venice Film Festival.
Qu Rays Chris Archer Jersey , whose directorial debut “Trap Street” (“Shuiyin Jie”) premiered to critical acclaim at the festival in 2013, was back in the Italian city to present her latest project.
She said sex education at an early age was important because children needed to learn how to protect themselves as their parents were not necessarily always around.
“Angels Wear White” is set in a seafront town, where two young girls are assaulted in a motel by a middle-aged man.
The only witness is receptionist Mia, who is only a few years older than the girls. As news of the assault spread, hotel management tries to cover up the evidence.
Mia Rays Brad Boxberger Jersey , worried she may lose her job, says nothing. Meanwhile, Wen, one of the victims, finds her troubles have just begun. In a world that offers them no safety Rays Alex Cobb Jersey , they have to find their own way out of their troubles.
Qu said she drew inspiration for the film from real life. It pained her to think that justice was often not served or came too late.
Making a movie on such a sensitive topic with a young, non-professional actress presented challenges, she added.
Qu spent two months training her young star Zhou Meijun on weekends when the girl was out of school. Zhou was not aware of the entire plot. “She didn’t understand, she was very young and very pure. So, we only gave her scene by scene Wilson Ramos Jersey ,” Qu said.
“We focused more on her relationship with her parents because that’s also how the film was and because those are the things that she could understand,” she added.
Qu is the only female director in the festival’s main competition this year and, while acknowledging the difficulties female filmmakers face, Qu said she believed it was more important to encourage women into the industry rather than opt for quotas.
“Any serious film makers would not want to be selected only because she is female, we want to be selected as good film makers Wade Davis Jersey , we make equally good films,” she said.
The winner of the Golden Lion award at the festival, which ended on Saturday, went to Mexican director Guillermo del Toro for “The Shape of Water.”
