I do not want to argue these gymnasts' ages. But may I ask why it is "obvious"?


it's obvious because Xinhua, state sanctioned news agency has conceded that He Kexin age is under the age limit of 16 this year.

also incriminating is the fact that they took measures to excise that reference. if it was a simple factual error they would have easily remedied that by issuing a correction and providing evidence if requested of her correct age

I agree with that article that you have to complain before you lose. After you failed, you do not have the right to complain any more. That is how "sourgrapes" were defined ...


history would seem to support your opinion. recall in 2004, the Korean rightfully won but the fact that he hadn't appealed the decision before the final scores the medal went to paul hamm.

considering the Chinese were favored to win, the US could have expressed their objections and made a stink before the competition. although to be honest they probably didn't have hard evidence about the girls' ages to lodge the protest at the time.

you make good points. but chinese still should not have used those girls (and may not have even needed to?)... LOl @ people defending cheating

Sore Losers / Sour Graping List
1. Temuchin
2. tha rock 2000whatever
3. nig1

I enjoyed their sour graping but I guess it's time for real entertainment bye.

I'll be looking at the medal standings
Gold Silver Bronze Total
1. China 22 8 5 35
2. United States 10 9 15 34
3. Germany 7 2 3 12
Any more excuses?
Btw I still maintain 1 Gold is worth more than a hundred bronze
if we are talking supremacy
I hope this shuts up the sour grape's for awhile.
Sour Graping just make you look like a sore loser.

I had a chance to follow up the story today.

That little girl's birthday was just good enough for the eligibility - one day past it.

So my gutt feeling is that they don't care. If Americans can create facts, so can they. Kind of daring. Arrogance is what used to describe this kind of situation.

But then, when I told my blonde blue eyed friend that the men's all around gold medalist was about to marry right after the games, she rolled her eyes in disbelief - she probably was thinking that he, too, was underaged. As like, only underaged from China can win in this sport, which, in her opionion, only the most autheticate blondes can compete, as the superb American team represents.

At least, this piece of news got at least 82% of the Americans' attention for Olympics. So that is the positive part of it. These 82% of Americans are more crayzy about "American Idols" than Olympics.

USA are just a bunch of sore losers. Making a big deal out of nothing.

USA athletes are known to abuse steroids. Marion Jones, anyone?! And if they wanna complain we're using underage athletes, well shame on them! Even our kids can whoop their teens. Wow, USA is dumb!

GO CHINA!

Marion Jones didnt get caught in competition. Interesting right?

More strict doping testings, most US women swimmers disappear.
