This question already has an answer here:

There also seems to be an absence of sports which can be played by older people, such as lawn bowls. Is there any reason for this?

  • For what it's worth, Mark Todd, age 56, won a bronze medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics in Equestrian. – user527 Aug 23 '16 at 12:48
