Ian Thorpe's Swimming Comeback

Source: CNN

CNN's Becky Anderson talks to the filmmaker documenting Ian Thorpe's return to the pool and competitive swimming. This is probably of more interest to me now having just read about Dara Torres' swimming comeback. It's hard to return to a sport where you used to be champion and now you're regarded as a dinosaur.

Swimming...ever wondered why most young animals take to water naturally.They never seem to have parents fawning over them.I remember watching a documentary about some island pigs who were quite brilliant swimmers.The little porkers were paddling along blissfully.Apparently any pig can swim(as opposed to flying!)

Well, babies also take to water rather naturally too, but lose the ability to breathe underwater after a few months or is it weeks?
