So do they lose the gold medal if proven that they are underage?
There were cases of athletes losing medals after proven steroid use.
China is the host of the games, and obviously doesnt mind cheating to get more gold medals.
Its good for the world to know what kind of people they are.

They'll lose gold medal to the second place if proven underage, and in case you don't know, everybody's cheating these days, it's good to know what kind of people you are steve, stupid and closed minded ****.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

oh and one more fact, these journalists are good at their jobs apparently by stiring up the public attention and faking facts, now one gymnasts who's well known now for the potential cheating scandal but when did it become three? you have to admit now these days some people are just trying their best for a particular purpose rather than fighting for justice, don't try to argue, it's so true, this article stands there as a perfect fact.

Well the facts are the Chinese govt. stated she was 13, 9 months before the Olympics and now all of a sudden 9 months later shes 16? Get real! The facts are the article was taken down to prevent people from seeing the truth! Of course since your in China your going to agree with whatever and of course the Chinese govt can fake her passport to make her eligible. Steve was wrong for stating "Its good for the world to know what kind of people they are." That was an ignorant statement I must agree. But the fact still remains- 9 months ago she was 13. Last time I checked she didnt age 3 yrs in 9 months. If they cheated they deserve to be exposed. And your wrong not everyone cheats these days! Your statement in saying that only shows how ignorant you are as well. The journalist are doing their job- stating and recovering the facts- obviously why China had such a hard time allowing the journalist there in the first place! Get a grip you can look at the girls and tell they are no where near 16 and no where near hitting puberty! Get it together people and dont be mad because the truth was put out there!

well I do not think it is Chinese people fault looking young. I think it is known worldwide that Asians look young. Dont hate when you look older than your age. I was told I just graduated from HS when I was almost 25. Hey if you want to look young be a Chinese your next life stop hating.
