I am undergrad in economics. I am also a race walker. I want to play in Rio Olympics 2016. But, I don't know when and which procedure is required to get to Olympic stadium. Please help. I will appreciate your suggestions.

    Some information on this... (1),(2) . But maybe all that really needs to be said, is that if you refer to participating in the Olympics as "play[ing]" -- no offense, but you probably are way out of scope here. The athletes that you see in the Olympics are generally discovered at extremely young ages, and train unimaginably hard for a quadrennial event. Not going to put this as an answer -- I don't really see this as a feasible question. – Nick Oct 9 '13 at 2:34

    Also, your sport is race walking. For how few people participate in race walking, this is really an unattainable goal if you aren't already in an Olympic training program. – Nick Oct 9 '13 at 2:37

  • Judging from the money lost by the host cities each Olympiad, it doesn't look like economists are allowed at the Olympics. – Ben Miller - Remember Monica Oct 11 '13 at 0:21
  • See this answer for general information about becoming an Olympic athlete. – Ben Miller - Remember Monica Feb 3 '14 at 15:13
