Hiroshi Hoketsu, 70-Year-Old Man Going To Olympics

It`s equestrian riding so the damn horse will be doing all the work, but still--70. You think your grandparents could?

(Perhaps not marathon fitness, but fitness and skill none the less)

Because, you know, riding is totally no effort on the rider.

(Protip, not true, I used to do a lot of endurance riding, and in order to compete me an my horse were both in peak physical condition. It takes a huge effort on the parts of both the horse and rider. Riding is strenuous, especially when you are not fit. When I first started I remember rising and falling to the trot being like doing squats. For hours. On end. Eventually my legs got so strong it was effortless. I've been out of the saddle for a few years now and I am so unfit as a result.)

"Why are equestrian events in the olympics, anyway?"

Because horseriding, for both the horse and the rider is a thing that takes a surprisingly huge amount of fitness and skill.
