One of the greatest Track and Field athletes, Jacqueline Joyner-Kersee, once said “Age is no barrier. It’s the limitations you put on your mind”. AARP would like you to know that on June 5-9, 2013 over 800 participating athletes over the age of 50 will meet at the Greeley Senior Activity Center for the 36th annual Rocky Mountain Senior Games, to put their lifelong training, preparation, and hard work to the test. They will compete in multiple events including: track, cycling, power walking, pickleball, tennis, pool and many other events over five days of competition. Results from the events will determine whether or not the athletes will qualify for the National Senior Games held in Cleveland, OH in July 2013. These seniors will prove that their age has no barrier and that they too, can continue to live out their dreams.
To recognize the athletes for all of their hard work, a Celebration of Athletes Banquet will be held on the opening night of the senior games. All seniors over the age of 50 are invited to participate in the Rocky Mountain Senior Games events; online registration will be available until May 20, 2013. You can also support the athletes by volunteering or encouraging others to enjoy these festivities. Remember, you set your own limitations.
