You watch the Special Olympics?
Probably because he's to old to attend anymore
I don't think there is an age cutoff for S.O. actually.
I've seen some of the coverage that has been aired and there were some older athletes in the competitions. That's probably the one athletic competition that is not biased against age.
It would be difficult for me to get a tryout in most Sports at my age as a Rookie even if I could still perform.
But in S.O. you just have to have the drive and determination to compete, coupled with a cognitive disability.
I generally change the channel within a few minutes but I applaud the athletes for at least going out and competing.
I bet Sonoco could take you though.
