"The National Senior Games or "Senior Olympics" is a sports competition for seniors from the United States. It is a multi-sport event specifically devoted to adults aged 50+ (events are divided into age groups with five years interval). It is composed of regional competitions held yearly in all American states. Every two years a nationwide event is held in one state (the National Senior Olympics).
The first Senior Olympics took place in 1987 and attracted 2,500 people. Recent attendance (Louisville, 2007) had over 10,000 competitors and 20,000 spectators, with oldest competitors being over 100 years old." (from Wikipedia)
Next year (2013) the Senior Olympics will be in Cleveland, OH. I know at least three people who will compete. One is a time trialist (cycling) and two are triathlon. If you are close check out this link www.nsga.com/venues-maps.aspx
