There is no age limitation as such for participating in Olympics. Age limitations are decided by individual International Sports Federations for their sport and implemented in Olympics.
18 dumb kid haha. no. i know someone who's going into archery Olympics @ the age of 16.
When it comes to Olympic sports, there is no maximum age that one must be under in order to compete. However, one must qualify for the Olympic event, and the minimum age is 16.
To compete in the junior Olympic games you have to 14 and the max age is18
Because u have to be a serten age to do the sport because u need to
I don't believe there are age restrictions; if you can qualify you can compete. You would have to be a unique talent to compete against the young dynamos that make it to the Olympic games.
There is no maximum age for competition in the Olympics. The oldest medalist in the Olympics was Oscar Swahn of Sweden who won a silver medal in shooting at the 1920 Games in Antwerp at the age of 72.
11 years of age is the minimum age to compete in Amateur boxing in Canada.
No, runners compete together regardless of age.
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.
Karate is not an Olympic sport.
The Chinese Olympic gymnasts were found to be of age to compete in the competition.
For olympic gymnastics they must be 16 in order to compete.
13-14 depending on hieght Nothing to do with height. Divers have to be 14 by the end of the Olympic year (31st December), so they could still be 13 at the Olympics.
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
Gymnasts must be 16 years old or turning 16 in that calendar year in order to compete in the Olympics or other international meets. There is no maximum age.This age limit has been raised a few times and is controversial because many of the best gymnasts in the world are below 16 and thus unable to compete in the Olympics. The great gymnast Nadia ComÄƒneci was only 14 years old when she scored the first perfect 10 in Olympic history at the 1976 Olympic games and won five medals, three of them gold. At this time the minimum age was 14, however Nadia would not have been allowed to compete under today's rules.The age limit was raised from 14 to 15 in 1980 as a result of younger and younger girls competing. In 1997 it was raised again to 16 where it currently stands.
You have to be 15 to compete in Olympics but any age to go to the olympic trials
The minimum age for participation in the games is estimated at 12 years.
There are age requirements you must be at least 15, however the chinese had girls compete in the 2008 olympics that were suspected to be around 13.
Dara has won 12 Olympic medals ... 4 gold, 4 silver, 4 bronze. Dara is training hard and, at age 45, has set her goals to compete at the 2012 Games in London.
The youngest so far was 11 and 3 months. It was a Brit skater.
The minimum possible age to be in the Olympics is 14. You have to turn 14 by the time the games start.
I believe the minimum age for competing in most Olympic sports is 16.
The International Federation of Gymnastics has a requirement of an athlete turning 16 years old in the Olympic year to compete. Figure skating has an age requirement of turning 15 by July 1 of the year before the Winter Olympics to compete. Other than that, there are no age requirements.
