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.

The AP reported yesterday that Mongolian sumo star Asashoryu is on the verge of a nervous breakdown, according to a psychiatrist. Asashoryu, née Dolgorsuren Dagvadorj, has been depressed since being suspended from competing in two tournaments by the Japan Sumo Association. The Ass-ociation has its sumo-diapers in a wad because Asashoryu did not compete in its summer exhibition tour, citing injuries, and, instead, did an unconscionably selfish thing–play a soccer match for charity in his native Mongolia. And now the Ass-ociation, who is cutting the wrestler’s pay by thirty percent, won’t even let Asashoryu leave Japan during his suspension. I always thought sumo kinda sucked, but now I know why.

I do not know how I missed the U.S. Sumo Open in Los Angeles this past weekend. I’m certain that I was very busy doing something of the utmost importance that made it totally impossible for me to attend.
The LA Times reported today that sumo wrestling is possibly fake.
Okay then. Consider this lip zipped.
