She Didn’t Look Underage…

April 28th, 2010 | 8 comments | Posted by Diana

It was announced today that the International Olympics Committee has stripped China of a bronze medal from the women’s gymnastics team competition at the 2000 Sydney Games. Team member Dong Fangxiao was 14 at the time, making her two years shy of eligibility–and her individual scores contributed to the overall team score, earning them the medal.

The US team, who placed fourth, will now be awarded the bronze medal. All of Dong’s former teammates will be forced to turn in their medals.





I, for one, am… shocked.

But unfortunately–though she’s hardly the one responsible for fudging her age and competing illegally–she, for one, is scrrreeewwwed. If I were her, I would keep my eyes peeled for any approaching tiny females. Eep!

    Any e.t.a. on China’s 2008 medal getting stripped?

    Мда.

    С одной стороны сообщение интересное, но с другой очень мало фактических обоснований...

    I feel sorry for all the kids both Chinese and American that got hurt by this, which was caused by what is supposed to be responsible adults watching out for their best interests.!!!

    I love how US teams (see: women’s relay in Toronto) keep getting medals for merely finishing the competition, a thoroughly American phenomenon.
