So, it seems like the Chinese did cheat in the gymnastics competition….
It’s a piece by piece inquiry of Chinese official documents that convinces me that she is 14 and that China has been actively deleting evidence to the contrary. Does it matter? In the abstract, a 14 year old competing at the Olympics is more impressive than a 16 year old- but rules are rules. They apply to everyone, and attempts to circumvent them and actively lie about it are pretty pathetic.
