What are the World Masters Games?
The World Masters Games is a global multi-sport event for athletes of masters age, held every four years, in a different city of the world each time. Every sport is different with respect to the age at which athletes becomes masters. For example, you’re a master at age 25 in swimming and generally a master in most sports by the age of 35.

The World Masters Games follows the Olympics model. There are Summer and Winter Games like the Olympics. Plus there are opening and closing ceremonies and medals awarded. The difference is that you do not need to be an elite athlete to compete and in most sports, you don’t need to qualify.
