Is 14 too old to become an athlete and maybe one day be in the olympics?
It appears that the sport you are being drawn to is track & field. So, no you are not too old. If you were wanting to be a world class/olympic gymnast then yes starting at 14 would be difficult. However, many track athletes start at your age. I would be sure to practice real hard, and enter summer track and field meets. There are 3 main track and field events available during the summer. USATF , here is there link: http://www.usatf.org:
AAU meets, here is their link: http://aauathletics.org/
State Games of America here is their link: http://www.stategames.org/ Best of luck!
yes, lots of water. lots of running,. of course, extreme ab work outs. you should also do weightlifting for reps so your muscles burn and get ripped. Most of all, stick to a daily exercise, as it takes a while to get great bodies. TIME and HARDWORK. one other thing is to eat 6 small meals a day instead of the traditional 3 large meals as your body will store fat from 3 large meals
If you're talking raw power then it's Natasha Perdue. Another weightlifter, in a heavier weight class than Smith so she can lift more than Smith. Though within their weight classes Smith is the better lifter.
Who do you think will get the olympic heptathlon gold medal?
the reason why Athens gold medallist and three-time world athletics champion Carolina Kluft of Sweden was not included in this list was because she already announced last week that she will not going to compete in this event anymore in 2008, stating that she was no longer motivated to train for and compete in heptathlon. instead, she will compete in triple jump and long jump in Beijing.
with Kluft already ruled out, Lyudmila Blonska will emerged as a slight favorite to win the gold medal in Beijing on the strenght of her silver medal finish behind Kluft in the recent world championship in Osaka. I will not totally count out Austra Skyutje who won the silver medal behind Kluft in 2004 Athens, who despite only finished a disappointed 6th place in last year world championship, holds the womens world record in decathlon.
so for me, it will be Blonska and Skyutje for the gold with Ennis, Sotherton and Lilly Scwarzkopf of Germany fighting for bronze medal.
Where can I buy Jessica Ennis sequin dress that she worn on sports personality of the year 2009 ;)?
I hope this was helpful for you.
Merry X'mas and Happy New year!
