In sports, we tend to see younger, stronger and faster athletes year after year. For example, NFL player Dontari Poe ran a 40 yard dash under 5 seconds at 349 lbs in 2012 at the age of 22. Yet, we have an “older” player like Zatlan (“Ibra”, The Lion”) Ibrahimovic, at the age of 39 he is still playing professional soccer. Around Ibra’s age or even younger soccer players are retiring from the sport, or playing at a lower competitive level.
Serena Williams, one of the icons of tennis… with 23 grand slams under her belt. Her experience and skill is amazing at the age of 39. Yet, critics think that she should retire. Every player is capable of knowing their own limits. After her injuries and maternity leave, she will need time to recover and we are positive that she has a lot more to offer to the tennis world. Now days, we cannot judge players just because of their age.
