They can compete in the Olympics 1-2 times usually. Your body gets too weak by the time you reach above 25 to be good enough for Olympics compared to the other younger girls that are waiting to go.

How long does it take to become a level 10 gymnast?

It depends on how many times a week you practice some people who practice 5 times a week could be a level 4 gymnast in just 4 years or shorter it helps when you have private lessons at least 5 times a week for a gymnast. Most people who do have private lessons five times a week want to take being a gymnast seriously so they get private lessons for 90 minutes 5 times a week. Becoming a level ten can take years ,but if you take gymnastics seriously for at least 4 or more years five times a week chances are you will be able to compete in the next olympics 2016 hope to see you at the future olympics remember it depends on how seriously you take gymnastics.

How old do you have to be to compete at the Olympics in gymnastics?

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 Comăneci 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.
