I feel bad for the girls who competed on the Chinese gymnastics team this Olympics. They were talented--there is no denying that.
But if they won their medals by illegally falsifying their ages, as is now finally being investigated, then it wasn't fair. They're just caught up in this, probably prompted on by their coaches and the Chinese gymnastics federation. But seriously, look at them... do the three girls accused of being younger than sixteen really look like they're sixteen years old?
I'm interested in seeing how this plays out in terms of medals and possible ramifications, especially now that the IOC has stepped in.
