Name the athlete who has been in the most Olympic games beginning in 1889?

The actual answer is 'Captain Canada' Ian Millar, who is savouring his 10th Summer Olympics in London 2012. He was 25 years old when he first took part in the Olympics at 25 in 1972. At 65 years old this may unfortunately be this talented equestrian's last trip to the Olympics; but I for one hope that he continues and ends up as also the oldest person to compete in the Olympics! He'd only have to compete in 2 more Olympic Games to get that title as well!
