Chinese swimmer, 16, stuns with fast time

Jul 30, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: WAPT-TV Jackson

When Chinese teenager Ye Shiwen dives into the pool on Monday, all eyes will be firmly on the clock to see if she can repeat her world-beating -- Ryan Lochte-beating -- time in the last 50 meters.

Well at least america has just overtook China in the medals table and with athletics to come you should retain top spot. I think the games will be honest as we disqualified the Chinese and ourselves for minor infringements in the cycling following the disqualifications in the Badminton for four pairs (all Asian) deliberately trying to lose.

Maybe the lack of juice accounts for Phelps lack of motivation which still is clear in many of his interviews and expressions. Still say he was coerced as a marketing ploy for NBC, the Olympics and US Swim program.

I'm also wondering with Phelps 'retiring' after 08 excluded him from much of the year round drug testing these athletes are subject to. So he could've doped until he was in enough shape to do it on his own. But supposedly his large hands and feet just like the Chinese girl are what makes them great. Still have to train assisted or unassisted.

I also agree that the badminton situation was incredibly poor sportsmanship, but I don't see how you can/should associate that with corruption with the Asian countries. Not that I don't disagree that there is corruption in China, it is just that are sort of separate things. Humanity in general can be prone to poor sportsmanship and deceit.

I think America is general one of the best countries... but it's not like we haven't had our own Olympic (Marion Jones, Tyler Hamilton, Tonya Harding) or corruption scandals (Bell, California).

A 16 year Chinese swimmer 'stuns' but an American 15 year old 'wins' as does a 17 year old American High School senior.

15 year old American "wins"

http://www.toledoblade.com/Olympics/2012/08/0...

17 year old American High School senior "sets world record"

http://www.latimes.com/sports/olympics/olympi...

But a 16 year old Chinese swimmer "stuns" and is under suspicion of doping. Her win is questioned right away.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2012/jul/30/y...

Yet wins by American teenagers are not questioned.

You are a typical American moron in denial. Have you ever heard of Marion Jones? She is such a f&^%ing joke. She denied using steroids in front of a grand jury. Talk about stupid!!!!!! Then the fake apology and tears to go with it. I have no use for athletes like her. Glad she was stripped of all her gold medals. Couldn't have happened to more of an idiot. Then there was Flo Jo ( Florence Griffith Joyner ) who died I believe as a result of steroid abuse. Unfortunately her record still stands in the 100 M which is a joke. There is no doubt many of the American male swimmers are on the juice. They simply know how to mask it better than other countries!!!!!!!!!!

No doubt Phelps and Lochte are on the juice. They just have good doctors who are good at masking the juice. Don't be naive you moron.

Sebastien Coe did not recognized Michael Phelps as the greatest Olympian of all time because of videos showing him doing coke and other illegal drugs. It has also been rumored that he took performance enhancing drugs by many of his inner circle. Before we jumped on other people we need to shut up and let the testers do their job. Ye has been tested before the Olympic , before each race and after each race and chances she will be tested after the Olympics, all clean and negative. So she has been tested by the most advanced equipment and numerous times so let it be.
Phelps is NOT the greatest Olympian of all time. He has the most medals but that doesn't mean he is the greatest Olympian. In most other sports you don't have the same opportunity to win as many medals. Sebastian's comments had nothing to do with Phelps and the bong photos etc. He is probably in the top 5 or 10 of all time. I would say Daley Thompson who won 2 Olympic decathlons should be in the discussion as the winner of the decathlon is considered the world's greatest athlete. Jim Thorpe, Jessie Owens, Edwin Moses etc. should be in the discussion as well.

Victor Conte, the BALCO guy who supplied Marion Jones & others says you could still dope with older methods. Says if you inject something like EPO by IV by it's undetectable with in 19 hours.

http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/olympics-20...

What these athletes could be doing is doping to train for harder workouts and faster recovery basically speeding up their "evolution". Steroids are as much about recovering faster as they are strength.

The problem is unless you learn to do and buy this stuff yourself you need an entourage of medical staff and trainers. The Chinese and US have the resources to do this year round and correctly. I don't think teenagers really need this stuff though.

yeah water ever dummy like there is no corruption in the USA... as your elite crashed your economy...

and you gave them bailouts for their efforts in 2008...

last year your Federal Reserves bought 61% of the Treasury debt form your Treasury... as if that is not printing money out of thin air...

and as your government pretends there is no such thing as "Accounts Payable" on your government balance sheet...
