Seniors ready to ‘let the games begin’ at Woodhaven – The News Herald
Did the tenacity of Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, sprint sensation Alyson Felix or freestyle phenomenon Caeleb Dressel spill the competition juice at Woodhaven?
Senior Coordinator Pam Miller hopes so.
As the competition draws to a close in Tokyo, things set to heat up in Woodhaven later this month.
With the Downriver Multi-City Senior Olympics being canceled again due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Woodhaven is allowing residents to engage in a friendly competition of their own.
The Woodhaven Senior Olympics will be held August 30 and 31 at the Community Center, 23101 Hall Road.
There will be an official opening ceremony and then the organizers will “let the games begin”.
Here are the different categories of competition:
Pétanque ball for men and women
Local leaders have already planned to attend the festivities.
The events have been selected to be a fun challenge regardless of the athletic ability of the participant.
Anyone 62 years of age or older who resides in the city can participate.
Registration is done at the community center.
The registration cost is $ 12 in one or all of the events.
An awards lunch is included in the registration fee.
