Way to go Fatneck
So last night the gymnast who looked unsure of herself all week just walking around, continued to look scared and screwed everything up. Everyone's accusing China of using girls who weren't old enough and well yeah, they were probably 13 or 14 as Bella Karolyi said (did you see Bob cringing that whole time as Bella said it so matter-of-factly?), but so what. That just means you lost to younger girls! That wouldn't happen in any other sport, "No fair, those soccer players are only 12, they don't resent the world for making them train so many years yet!" Seriously though, I understand that being tiny could be an advantage and China definitely had it.
I'm looking forward to track and field. China can't have that many medals in that, can they? One thing we're lacking this year is a flashy track athlete (Remember Dan vs. Dave?). We've always had someone, but I believe some runners from the islands sprint faster. They sure as hell won't be Chinese though.
Oh and here's an update from a real sports blog about their ages...
