I also spend lots of time thinking about what Olympic sports I would still be eligible to participate in based on my age and level of fitness. Granted this was always a fairly limited list, because there are just something's I just don't have the body type or physical ability to do.
Ski Jumping - is it me, or do these dudes look like anorexic middle school kids - I am way to fat to fly
- this also eliminates Nordic Combined (combination of ski jumping and cross country skiing)
Cross Country - this looks a lot like running......hummmmm......to much work
- using "to much work" as an excuse probably already disqualifies me from ever being an Olympian
Skiing and Snowboarding Events: I certainly have the mentality and the right attitude, if Alberto Tomba can squeeze himself into some racing tights why couldn't I? But alas, I live where people call off school when it snows (or even threatens to snow) an inch.
That leaves Curling. Having looked at the bio's of the currently Olympic Curling team, I think that I still have a shot to live the Olympic Dream. I will know I am old when I can finally cross Curling off the list of Olympic sports I still have a shot at making my Olympic debut.
