    More than 25,000 athletes, ranging in age from 35 to 100-plus, are competing at the World Masters Games in New Zealand.

    There are more than twice as many competitors in Auckland than there are at the Olympic Games.

    But the World Masters Games receive much less attention than the Olympics, and there is a sense that the World Masters is a much more attainable event.

    Al Jazeera’s Victoria Gatenby explains.
