There's been a update though I doubt it will be enough to quell everyone's doubt about this:

http://www.nbcolympics.com/gymnastic...says?GT1=39003

My favorite part is:

"At this competition, the Japanese gymnasts were just as small as the Chinese," the coach said. "Chinese competitors have for years all been small. It is not just this time. It is a question of race. European and American athletes are all powerful, very robust. But Chinese athletes cannot be like that. They are by nature that small."

Now go look at the Women's Chinese Volleyball team. *snicker*

The IOC asked the International Gymnastics Federation to investigate "what have been a number of questions and apparent discrepancies," spokeswoman Giselle Davies said. The FIG has said repeatedly that a passport is the "accepted proof of a gymnast's eligibility," and that China's gymnasts have presented ones that show they are age eligible. The IOC also checked the girls' passports and deemed them valid before the games began.

Lu said the Chinese gave the FIG documents Thursday evening that included the current and former passport, ID card and family residence permit for double gold medalist He Kexin. Lu said the documents all say she was born in 1992, which makes her eligible to compete. Gymnasts must turn 16 at some point during the Olympic year in order to be eligible.

"Surely it's not possible that these documents are still not sufficient proof of her birthdate?" Lu asked. "The passports were issued by the Chinese Foreign Ministry. The identity card was issued by China's Ministry of Public Security. If these valid documents are not enough to clarify this problem, then what will you believe?
Hmm they were issued by the same Chinese govt that is obsessed with winning the medal count and would bring shame upon their country if it was found out they cheated, the same govt with one of the worst labor problems (I can't think of the right words). Surely these documents are real and not fraudulent

no one's acting like the west is perfect.

what we are acting like is that China cheated.

We've cheated too. How many western athletes have been tested positive for steroids? I'm just as hard on them.

Breaking rules is never acceptable for me. It's ESPECIALLY not acceptable when it's not just the athlete but the government is involved in breaking those rules.

Personally I've really been only following this story from this forum and the amusing arguments that it has sparked. I posted the link because it was on my MSN site- when it comes right down to it I couldn't give 2 sh!ts about which little wearing too much make-up pre-teen tart gets the gold.

I can't follow baseball, there are no big fights this weekend, football hasn't started yet and I have to wait until late tonight to watch Argentina beat up on Nigeria.

And Texas is a central nation not West-

Over-coverage and every media outlet talking about the same thing gets old- that's why I watch porn, er I mean that's why I go work out- yeah.
