What is the minimum age set by the International Olympic Committee to compete in the Olympic Games?

  • 8
  • 9
  • No Age Minimum correct

    The Olympic committee puts no regulation on an age limit for the Olympic Games but that's like saying your kid's school puts no regulation on how much candy they can eat in a day. It doesn't mean you don't have a limit. Each International Sports Federation has its own ruleset in place for the Olympics. The age limit for gymnasts set by the International Federation of Gymnastics sits at 18 for Men and 16 for the Women Artistic and Rhythmic Gymnastics, 17 for Trampoline (18 for the Olympic Games), 18 for Aerobic, and 15 for Acrobatic Gymnastics (the minimum age for flier). So yes, your kid still has to go to junior high. Source: The Olympic Official Website
