X-treme sports in Sierra Vista

Well, I guess they aren’t x-treme sports.  No bungee jumping or scaling tall buildings.

But, they are competitive.  I’m talking about the 28th Annual Senior Games in Sierra Vista, to be held January 9-11, 2009.  This, the oldest Senior Olympic-style Games in Arizona, is the largest recurring multi-sports event in the area.  And registration  for the Games is now open and will be open to registrants until December 31, 2008. 

The Games are designed for those over age 50, with a Masters’ Division for those ages 45-49. Last year athletes over age 80 competed in their respective event categories.  I’m amazed and impressed at their skill level and athleticism. 

As I said, these athletes are competitive.  They want to win.  With 17 different events scheduled, hundreds of competitors will be reaching for gold, silver or bronze medals. 

If you want to show your prowess in basketball, racquetball, cycling, tennis, track and field or one of the other events, join the athletes who come from all over the United States and Canada, in Sierra Vista. 

Not an athlete? It’s fun to be a spectator too. Plan a visit in Sierra Vista for the weekend and watch these athletes go for the gold!
