Age limits are set by the Federation that controls each particular sport. Most Federations to not have an age limit. Gymnastics is one sport that does have an age limit and it was set in 1992. It states that an athlete must turn 16 years old by December 31 of the Olympic year to qualify to participate in that year's Olympic Games.
