Some Olympic sports have age requirements for health and safety reasons.
Competition rules of certain international federations cite age limits as follows:
- Bobsled (minimum of 14 years old)
- Boxing (17-32)
- Diving (minimum of 14)
- Equestrian (16 or older)
- Figure skating (15 by July 1 of previous year)
- Gymnastics (must be 16 years old in Olympic year)
- Judo (15 or older), luge (16 or older)
- Soccer (under 23)
- Team handball (over 18)
- Weightlifting (17 or older)
- Wrestling (must be at least 17 on day of Opening Ceremonies).
There are no general restrictions among the International Federations on an "upper" age limit.
None. Ghana's and Kuwait's ban has now been lifted. The bans originated from government interference with the olympic committee and athlete selection. Saudi Arabia was threatened due to their law prohibiting female athletes, but in order to compete they lifted the law and brought three female athletes.
In order to host the olympic games, you have to send in an application (It is very competitive to host the olympics). It also costs lots of money to have the appropriate stadiums build and accommodations for all the athletes, workers, and the fans to stay in. And I would think Africa has its own issues they're dealing with so unless your an olympic athlete, the people there have much bigger things to worry about.
