There is no age but there are very few Olympic runners under 18. In Track and Field, athletes are not stronger or faster at a younger age unlike some other sports such as swimming, diving, or gymnastics.

The age requirements currently used by the olympic committee limit the number of highly experienced professional players a team can have. That limitation creates more parity between more teams. Without that increased chance for smaller countries to win a medal, many smaller countries would not even submit a soccer team to play in the Olympics.
