Amanda Beard makes it to 100 meter breaststroke final

Olympic medalist, Playboy model and Godaddy girl Amanda Beard has made it to the final of the 100 meters breaststroke.

“I wanted to set that example that if you try, you’re not failing,” Beard says of her decision to return to competitive swimming after taking off two years following the 2004 Games. She also is entered in the 200 breast and 200-meter individual medley.

“I’m extremely surprised at where I am right now,” she says.

She thinks her best chance to compete at the Beijing Olympics is in the 200 meter breaststroke, and plans using the 100 meter final as a warm-up.
