Best Answer

the oldest athlete competing at the Beijing Olympics in August is 67-year-old Hiroshi Hoketsu, a dressage rider for the Japanese equestrian team. His first Olympics was in 1964, where he placed 40th in the show jumping competition. It's been 44 years since Hoketsu's Olympic debut, and in that time he's been busy running large pharmaceutical companies, including the Japan division of Johnson & Johnson, prior to his retirement in 2002.
