    Wow! So what they are saying is that the U.S. & other countries gymnasts were beaten by 14 year old girls.

    Cheating or embarrassing to the losers?

    I can't see what the big deal is. I know they changed the rules, but why?

    Being a 14 Y.O Gold medal gymnast used to get you worldwide acclaim

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nadia_Com%C4%83neci
    At the age of 14, Comaneci became one of the stars of the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal. During the team portion of the competition, her routine on the uneven bars was scored at a 10.0. It was the first time in modern Olympic gymnastics history that the score had ever been awarded. The scoreboards were not even equipped to display scores of 10.0—so Nadia's perfect marks were reported on the boards as 1.00 instead.[20] Over the course of the Olympics, Comaneci would earn six additional 10s, en route to capturing the all-around, beam and bars titles and a bronze medal on the floor exercise. The Romanian team also placed second in the team competition.

    Not so. I don't know much about gymnastics but they way it was described on television the other day, is that female gymnasts hit their peek at an early age. I guess the younger athletes have an advantage over the grown girls because their bodies have not made that "change" yet.

    The point is, we followed the rules and the Chinese didn't which clearly provided them with an advantage.

    Why is it countries think they can get away with this stuff?
    Men pretending to be women, doping,
    age?
    :-\
    They think losing is embarrassing.
    Its nothing compared to being caught cheating.

    Thats a classic example of a loser's excuse.
    creating some story about how they have an advantage by using younger girls.
    14 year old girls aren't nearly as developed, fit or strong as older girls, yet they somehow win.
    Perhaps the judges see a "cute little girl"
    and feel they need to give her a step up, or maybe its the way they train, but either way, China's team of little girls, beat the best every other country has to offer.

    Not just that but they are lighter, they can tumble, flip etc easier then a 19 year old. They can stick a landing easier because they are lighter and dont have as much gravity pulling them down. My cousins were all gymnasts and they hit there peak at around 13-14 and quit at 16 because it got to hard to play. They should get rid of the rule. If it is a rule you follow it, wtf does China not understand? they are so obsessed with appearances that they don't let a cute little girl sing the anthem, but rather have a "prettier" girl lip sync the song. They send in To young of athletes (against the rules, i don't care if it was a disadvantage). They are a bunch of Cheating Commies. China made themselves look worse off by cheating.
