There is no limit to how old an Olympic competitor can be. The oldest competitor ever in the Olympics was shooter Oscar Swahn of Sweden who was 72 years, 281 days old when he competed in the 1920 Games in Antwerp. Oscar is also the oldest competitor to ever win an Olympic medal as he won a silver medal in team running target double shot shooting at the 1920 Games. The oldest competitor in the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing was Hiroshi Hoketsu of Japan who was 67 years, 139 days old when he competed in dressage (equestrianism).
Bill Roycroft. Roycroft was 61 years and 131 days old when he competed in individual and team eventing (equestrian) at the 1976 Summer Games in Montreal, winning a bronze medal in the team competition. Obviously, not only is he the oldest Australian to compete in the Olympics but the oldest Australian to win a medal in the Olympics.
Gymnastics requires the competitor to be turning 16 in the year of the Olympics. Figure skating requires the competitor to be turning 15. Other than those two events, there are no age limits.
