    If a guy's working harder than me - doing more than me - he fking well deserves to beat me.

    Me either. It occurred to me as I read the article, how does one verify their eligibility for this competition? What would keep a straight person from claiming to be gay in order to enter?

    Regardless, the guy is a great example of what can be accomplished in the "golden years". He obviously doesn't buy into the stereotype that we have to weaken and become incapacitated by age, as many expect.

    I thought the same thing, wrote it and actually edited my post deleting the thought.

    My mind started to go to some weird qualification or elegibility rounds......

    Well, the article DID say that it was "primarily" for gay athletes. And it did say he's the father of three and grandfather of eight, so his heterosexuality isn't up for debate. Whatever the case, he looks great for a man his age and I can only hope to look half that good if I reach his age.

    And, no, I do NOT want to think about how one "qualifies" for those games, LOL!

    I certainly didn't intend for this to become a sexual orientation discussion, but it should be noted that gays and lesbians do adopt children. It may be premature to assume that just because he's a father, he's heterosexual.

    Actually, in an ideal world this wouldn't make a difference whatsoever, but simply because one has children doesn't necessarily mean that they are heterosexual. Producing children is a physical and biological thing and doesn't not denote orientation as I know quite a few same sex couples that have either adopted children or have had children prior to their finallly "coming out", both male and female. And don't judge......it is what it is.

    And either gay or straight, this 68 year old bodybuilder looks phenomenal and I too hope to look as good as he does when I am at that age!
    Huge Muscle and a HUGE Attitude! Take no prisoners, in and out of the gym GRRRR!!!

    I have two friends/work mates who are gay fathers. One with two daughters and the other with 3 boys. Both are still on good terms with theirs spouses for the children.

    Being married and or with children really doesn't "guarantee" heterosexuality.

    Okay, I stand corrected and honestly meant no offense to anyone. I just assumed that he was straight--children/grandchildren and all that. (Yes, I know "to assume" means to make an ass out of you and me--or in my case, me being the ass).

    Having said that, it doesn't matter if he's gay or straight. The guy has worked hard and has created an enviable physique for his age--or any other, for that matter. What I said before stands: If I could look half as good at that age, then I'd be satisfied.

    No, I don't know. Guy looks good and his sexuality isn't an issue with that.
    Exodus 20:12
    "Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee."

    Jeremiah 29:11
    "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

    Bruises: The trophies that disappear.
    Scars: The trophies that linger.
    Garnering both of the above honorably: Glory that lasts forever.
