At age 16, you should at least be 5'0" by then.

Obviously they don't look to be at least 15.
They should be stripped of their medals entirely.

Past documents prove them to be 14!

Hmmm, Mr. QuitActingDumb, why don't YOU quit acting dumb? May I just ask you a question? Why do the United Shits of America keep on complaining about a thing that already finished? If the Shits had sent a 14 year old into the Games and she won the gold, would the people of the Radiant of China care? They have been your friends, your friends, they helped you, they supported you, and what did you do to show your guarrateen? You betrayed them, complained about them, envied them, and tried to make them seem bad. Maybe one day the Shits will start a war against the Radiants. And all for a little flat disic that isn't even made out of real gold!

QuitActingDumb should QuitTalkingDumb. Question: Why was Yao Ming selected to be on the National Chinese basketball team? Cause having freakin' tall people is an advantage in the sport! If in gymnastics, it is advantageous to have a smaller body size, then you select smaller people. Also, looking young isn't a crime. Based on the multi-billion dollar cosmetics industry in this country, I would say that it's actually what a lot of people want most. Past documents don't prove shit!
