She excelled again. Taormina reached the peak of Triathlon with a World Championship victory in 2004 and spots on the 2000 and 2004 Olympic Teams. Once again, she didn't hang up her goggles. This time she dropped the bike and added a horse, a sword, and a rifle.
Now she has made Olympic history with her spot on the US Pentathlon team. Today she is the first person to ever qualify for the Olympic Games in 3 different sports.
At 39, Taormina will be one of the oldest members of the US Olympic Team, however as she competes in her fourth Olympic Games, experience will certainly be on her side.
