Three-time Olympian, Four Time Gold Medalist, Dawn Fraser is racing again at 71-years-old!

From NT-News down under: "... Dawn Fraser, winner of four Olympic gold, six Commonwealth gold and owner of 41 world records, placed second in her highly anticipated 50m (70-74-years) freestyle event on Day 2 of the Alice Springs Masters Games.

While not a golden comeback - Victoria's Barbara Wilson-Brooks ensured that with a winning time of 47.59secs - Fraser greeter her effort as a resounding personal triumph. "..." [Link]

Dawn Fraiser is looking to drop 5-seconds off that time so she is back in the game and competitive as ever.
