So I was watching the Olympics the other night with my roommate, and the women's gymnastics was on. He was mentioning how hot the Chinese women's gymnastic team is. I tried telling him that at the oldest they are probably only 16, and there has been speculation that some may be under 16. He then goes on and tells me he wants to impregnate a girl under the age of 16. At that point I switched the channels and put on the Red Sox.
The point is, the truth has come out against the China gymnastic team. They cheated. They have underage girls on their teams. Usually the term "underage girl" is a good thing. But not when they are 13.
BEIJING -- Just nine months before the Beijing Olympics, the Chinese government's news agency, Xinhua, reported that gymnast He Kexin was 13, which would have made her ineligible to be on the team that won a gold medal this week. In its report Nov. 3, Xinhua identified He as one of "10 big new stars" who made a splash at China's Cities Games. It gave her age as 13 and reported that she beat Yang Yilin on the uneven bars at those games. In the final, "this little girl" pulled off a difficult release move on the bars known as the Li Na, named for another Chinese gymnast, Xinhua said in the report, which appeared on one of its Web sites, www.hb.xinhuanet.com
The Associated Press found the Xinhua report on the site Thursday morning and saved a copy of the page. Later that afternoon, the Web site was still working but the page was no longer accessible. Sports editors at the state-run news agency would not comment for publication.Many people have issues that the Chinese went to this level to win. Not my roommate, he loved it.
