  • China Cheated in the Olympics?

    Thoughts?

    I knew the gymnists looked pretty sketchy but it also kind of seems like they cheated or were highly favored in other sports activities...

    (Medals) http://www.nbcolympics.com/medals/20...ngs/index.html

    (MSNBC with article about IOC saying China didnt cheat) http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26337759/

    (Fox with story on Chinese gymnist age) http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,407803,00.html

    (Somewhat BS yahoo thread): http://answers.yahoo.com/question/in...3091631AAXEHA5

    And lastly a website of its own (MAY CONTAIN SPYWARE, I loaded it up from google and my anti virus detected the website as having virus' and in the website it has a article saying place got hacked by someone calling theirself the 'White Sultan') http://chinacheated.com/

    Of course they did. And it is a very good thing as far as I can see.

    I now have a "bad guy" to root against. Makes watching the Olympics much more fun. Every since the U.S.S.R. and the east German Women went away the Olympics just haven't been as fun to watch.

        Haha you make me laugh...

        But yea it seems like Russia, UK, and other countrys are also trying to get this investigated although if I'm right the IOC already stated it wasnt going to investigate thouroughly?

        What are people thinking though? Should it be investigated the best way possible or left alone for political matters? Doesn't seem like a real West vs. East thing if Russia is also pissed off..

          Everyone knows the score. Specifically, the technical scores, which reflect errors. Chinese girls fall and stumble and get higher technical scores than the other teams' athletes who's only flaws are supposed to be tenth-point deductions.

          The paid-off talking heads have had their air-time, reciting scripts about how China has "proved" it is an "athletic superpower" and has "begun a dynasty." No, they simply fielded a number of great athletes, and weren't above cheating in order to go over the top.

          2012 will show what China really can do. A pity their gymnasts will be judged too old and will be replaced by 8-year-olds that have been stretched taller and had ALL their documentation "corrected."
