There is no specific age limit to participate in the Olympics Games. However each sports federation is able to make their own age requirements if they choose to do so.
the lst summer Olympics the age was set at 14
All competitors in the Commonwealth Youth Games will be a minimum of 14 and maximum of 18 in the year of competition (i.e, their 18th birthday is during the calendar year in which the Games is held) and a maximum number of 1000 competitors are invited to participate from every Commonwealth Games Association.
Yes. In gymnastics, the athlete must be 16 to compete in the Olympics..or turning 16 in that year. Before 1996, however, the minimum age was 15. The reason for this is because the IOC don't want (mostly) young girls to get injured at such a young age and injured during the aging process of younng teens. They can be in the youth olympic games
age limit should be under 18
Tom entered the 2008 Olympic Games when he was 14-years-old. He was one of the youngest competitors.
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.
