Can Older Be Better? The Aging Athlete.
Levin, Susanna
Physician and Sportsmedicine, v20 n7 p139-44,146 Jul 1992

For older athletes, scheduling sufficient training and recovery time becomes increasingly difficult, but physical and financial rewards entice them to try. No studies have directly addressed the true potential of aging athletes. (SM)
