The Chinese Gymnasts ARE too young!

Hold on to your chopsticks. An online blogger was able to google/baidu his way into the Chinese sport authority’s website and lo and behold: The tiny tumbler, He, who nudged Nastia Liukin out of a gold medal in uneven bars (‘m still seething about that!) is actually 13 years old!!!!!!! WIll someone from the major media please say SOMETHING about this? Sure it could potentially start world war III, but come on! The US looks like we don’t care. I will say though that if the chinese can’t sweep the floor with everyone at the olympics by using underaged underweight family-deprived robot girls, then that reflects really poorly on their program. And it reflects really well on the United States. Nastia and Shawn have some seriously heavier frames than the chinese babies they call tumblers and they still managed to knock the asian rugrats out of contention for gold! USA! USA!
