In keeping with last week’s post about some lovely young ladies competing for Team USA in the Rio Olympics. Today, I want to tell y’all about some awesome women that aren’t letting age stop them from achieving Olympic greatness!
This week, Kristin Armstrong took home her third iOlympic gold medal in the women’s individual time trial (cycling) the day before her 43rd birthday! She battled through a nosebleed and osteoarthritis in BOTH hips! What a BAMF!
Oksana has been comepeting in the Olympics for more than 25 years! She is proof that hard work pays off if you stick with it! Just check her out:
Kim Rhode has been competing in the skeet shoot and double trap shooting since she was 13 years old! She’s been competing in the Olympics for TWENTY years and, while in Rio this year, became the first U.S. Olympian to qualify for an Olympic team on FIVE different continents! What a sharp shooter!
These ladies prove age is just a number!
