BTW, I am Huntsman World Senior Games ambassador, as well as a cycling record holder, so I can answer questions about these games. Ask away. Smiley Happy

 

This year I also competed in the South Dakota and Nebraska Senior Games, so can answer questions about those as well. Smiley Happy

It would be interesting to know how the foreign athletes populate the various sports. I know from visiting with fellow competitors that both Barbados and Canada are well-represented in cycling, but don't know about the others.

Ever wonder how you measure up against senior athletes from around the world? You can stop wondering. You can instead spend this winter training, improving performance and then participating in the Huntsman World Senior Games where you can compete against seniors from 34 countries.

 

Pickleball. Softball. Ping Pong, basketball, swimming, triathlon, cycling, archery, target shooting, running, race walking and bowling. Track and field. Golf, bridge, shuffleboard, soccer, and more. 

 

Believe me, a 2-year participant, this is the place to get your game on! Smiley Happy
