either way it doesn't matter what they found on the internet. the chinese govt can falsify passports and birth certificates in two hours and the i.o.c. won't accept anything but "official" govt documentation.
it would be sort of nice is something really embarrassing happened to china during the games though
Beth Tweddle has the best and most British name I have ever heard. She sounds like she belongs in a Roald Dahl book.
If they are found to be underage, would that disqualify them from the team gold medal they have? How would that work?
Thank god for the Internet and it's wonderful tubes!
As to the age thing, yes that would result in them being stripped of their medals and the next finishers being recorded as having won.
On the one hand it sucks, because those girls worked really hard and gave amazing performances. On the other hand, swimmers have to pee into a cup as soon as they finish a race. The take-home lesson is, if you don't follow the rules, you should expect to be disqualified.
The Chinese government has the PR problem where they, like, lie all the time. It's a cultural defect. They lie about melamine, gymnast ages, lead content, phthalate content. They have to hire Westerners to do building site inspections because Chinese ones will lie in order for everyone to "save face" about problems. China and lying are synonymous. They need to wise up and realize that they're losing more face by lying all the time than they would be if they just sucked it up and told the truth once in a while.
Everytime I see He Kexin's name in print, I hear "Take A Walk On The Wild Side", and the words "He was a she", in my head. Yes, I am a retard, thank you very much.
