How ironic, Ms. Yang was advised by the court side technical examiner to switch to a pair of socks of older generation, since the first (newer) pair was insensitive. Then, they ruled it illegal because of extra sensors. The official supplier has offered the opinion that either generations of the socks are legal to use in all international competitions until June 2011! I suppose we are still at a moment of time well before that.

By the way, each sensor has a defintive place by the size and shape of the velco patch sewed in the socks. Anyway, she has removed the two sensors when told to remove, apparently, due to arbitrary ruling there and then. The same two sensors were retrieved by the game official from the court side to show as the evidence of rule violation, claiming they were used on the mat! Remenber, she took off the sensors, walked off the mat, then walked back onto the mat in front of everyone's eyes! How was it possible unless she was a magician!

One week later, the technical examiner still only cries, would not have the courage to tell the facts!

If we were talking about politics, I would 100% agree it is an act of deceptive action by the "Chinese Taipei". Majority of Taiwan citizens are TAIWANESE, not Chinese. The proper name id "TAIWAN" NOT "Chinese Taipei".

To me, Taiwanese to Chinese is like American to British. There is a cultural and partial genetic connection. After 1960 Olympics, the then occupying dictator ruler Generalissmio Chiang Kai-shek, without the consent of Taiwanese residents, requested the Olympic governing body not to use the name of Taiwan, because he was ashamed of being called Taiwanese! This is a point of Korean report. majority of Chiang followers and their decents still feel superior to all other Asian people including Taiwanese. YOU SEE, they tell Taiwanese to be Chinese. But, then they also contempt anything Taiwanese! That's why local Taiwanese are still calling on Chinese Nationlist to repent their error in the past (.. 1947 slaughter of 20000 Taiwanese, 45 years old martial law, KMT princes dominated politics, etc) like what has been done in Argentina, Spain, Portugal, Chile and going on in Turkey.

Chiang Kai-shek remenants and their princes were the one incited the Korean hatred, not the true decent local Taiwanese.
