Dozens of traditional Aymara
grandmothers ease many of the aches
and pains of aging by practising a
sport that is decidedly untraditional
in Bolivia---team handball.
The women, some of them great-
grandmothers, arrive with their tennis
shoes every Wednesday at a covered
court in El Alto, an impoverished city
near the capital of La Paz.
Known in the Aymara language as
"awichas," or grandmothers, the
women pull sports jerseys over their
long-sleeved blouses and ruffled skirts,
then perform warm-up exercises while
singing a childhood song.
"There are days my knees hurt from
rheumatism, but when I play it goes
away," said 77-year-old Rosa Lima,
who first began doing simple exercises
eight years ago, then later took up team
handball. She lives alone and looks
forward to playing with her friends
Team handball is an Olympic sport
in which two teams of pass a ball using
their hands with the aim of throwing
it into the other s goal. The games the
grandmothers participate in are part
of a programme that El Alto sponsors
to encourage older people to stay
healthy by remaining active.
About 1,000 older people practise
sports, play Andean music and recall
their younger years through the pro-
gramme that also provides free medical
care to around 10,000 participants.
The programme so far has spread to
six of El Alto s 14 districts.
"This helps us a lot, says Juana
Poma, an 84-year-old great-grand-
mother of five.
"Look, I m full of life, but I m also
stay fit with handball
