World Masters Athletics
For some athletes, hanging up the running spikes as they get older is not an option. After dedicating their youth to their sport, their bodies remain in peak condition to continue to compete and World Masters Athletics gives women and men of no less than 35 years of age the opportunity to continue to compete against athletes of their own age.
Just because an athlete retires from the professional ranks does not mean that they lose their competitive edge. The fire that burns within them does not go out, and they can keep competing, keep trying, until they reach 100 years of age – and this actually happens!
Masters athletics is a concept where athletes over the age of 35 can pit themselves against others in similar age groups, to keep that competitive spirit burning.
For athletes that just want to keep going, the World Masters Athletics Championships represent something of a golden ticket. Created for athletes that are still in competitive form, masters athletics is a concept where athletes can pit themselves against others in similar age groups, to keep that competitive spirit burning.
