Best Answer

There is no age limit for Track and Field. But, there is an age limit for other sports in the Olympics. For example, you must be 16 to compete in gymnastics, and you must be 18 to compete in equestrian. But there is no age limit for track and field. It is very rare you will find someone under the age of 14 or 15 in the Olympics though.
