Paris 2024: Meet 11-year-old heading to Olympics

Olympics 2024:  A diverse group of accomplished athletes and up-and-coming talent will compete in the worldwide multisport event in Paris in 2024.

There's fifty-year-old Andy Macdonald, a Brit. He's going to compete in the skateboarding division. When he competes, he will actually be 51 years old, but there is also Zheng Haohao, an amazing 11-year-old skateboarder from China.


The 50-year-old McDonald will compete for Britain at the Olympics.

Haohao will be the youngest Olympian when the world gathers in Paris later this month.

She qualified for the Games by competing in the pre-Olympic skating competitions in Shanghai and Budapest.

She will compete in a sport at the age of eleven that had the youngest podium in Olympic history at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

That event saw Japan's Nishiya Momiji win gold at 13, Brazil's Rayssa Leal take silver, also at 13, and Japan's Nakayama Funa claim bronze at 16.

The Chinese could become the youngest medalist in Summer Olympics history; she claimed a medal in Paris. The current record is held by American Marjorie Gestring, who won gold in springboard diving at the age of 13 years and 268 days during the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

At the Tokyo 2020 Games, 12-year-old Kokona Hiraki became the youngest Olympic medalist in 85 years by winning silver in the women's park skateboarding event.

Despite her young age, Haohao won't be the youngest competitor or medalist in Olympic history.

That record belongs to Greece's Dimitrios Loundras, who was just 10 years and 218 days old when he earned a bronze medal in the team gymnastics event at the 1896 Athens Games.
