The point is, just because elderly people might be a little wrinkled, we don’t all have to see them as weak and incapable. This is why, in San Antonio Texas, they hold the Senior Games every year to encourage and promote the fitness and healthy lifestyle of people in their old age. These games were first held in 1990 with 525 athletes participating, however last year, this number reached an all-time high of 1,200, who participate in over 24 individual sporting events—each athlete must participate in at least 3 events. Some events include:
· Road Races
· Table Tennis
What are your feelings about these senior games? Would you, as a blogger, sign yourself up for the senior games when you become elderly? How do you feel about elderly people feeling victorious and successful?
