From weekend warriors to former elite athletes, the World Masters Games 2017 ambassadors are a very special group of sports men and women representing different sports, age groups and experiences.
The ambassadors are lending their time and support as masters advocates quite simply ‘for the love of sport’ and will help World Masters Games 2017 communicate the size and scale of the event and its importance to the masters sporting movement globally.
Many of the ambassadors are former elite athletes who have chosen to continue with their passion until much later in life. Equally, some are looking to try their hand at new sports and will train for something different in 2017.
This reflects the World Masters Games ethos - that the event is for anyone with a passion for sports competition. Ability is only part of the story.
