Re: Why Should We Cheer For Senior Athletes?

10,500 athletes competed this year at the Nationals. In comparison, the state games are very small. In 2016 the Rocky Mountain Senior Games had about 300 athletes. This year the North Dakota Games Senior Games had around 500 athletes. The Nebraska Senior Games, too had 500ish athletes. The Huntsman World Senior Games, in St George, Utah, draw 11,000 athletes. There were 500 cyclists registered last time I checked.

 

All that to say: there's room for you at the games. Smiley Happy

Why Should We Cheer For Senior Athletes?

The 2017 National Senior Games turned the spotlight to some of the world's oldest and most inspiring athletes. (142 records set this year! Story: http://nsga.com/pressrelease/142-records-set-at-2017-national-senior-games-presented-by-humana)

 

Why should we care?

 

This past summer, nearly 11,000 senior athletes competed at the National Senior Games that were held in Birmingham, Alabama. So what, right?

 

The Games feature athletes 50 years old and up vying for medals in 19 different sports, proving you can enjoy a healthy, active and competitive lifestyle at any age. The Games also provide health and wellness expos featuring everything from tai chi lessons to health screenings in an effort to get the older generation up and moving.

 

That’s something to cheer for.
