Only took 10 years! I wonder how long before they go after the 2008 medals.

I just remember the old thread about the underage Chinsese gymnast from the Beijing Games.

alright!!

And that must have had less evidence than 2008. That blogger or whatever who was all up in arms about China cheating had posted the birth certificates (or whatever they have in China) on the internet from China's database.

Mysteriously they disappeared from the database soon after.

The action comes 20 months after China was accused of doctoring the ages of at least two of its gymnasts (http://sports.yahoo.com/olympics/vancouver/blog/fourth_place_medal/post/Alright-there-s-no-way-those-Chinese-gymnasts-a;_ylt=AqHTJAkLa5H17pOJDuzvFkFotLV_?urn=oly,101696 ) at the Beijing Games. Those allegations became a focal point (http://sports.yahoo.com/olympics/vancouver/blog/fourth_place_medal/post/Alright-there-s-no-way-those-Chinese-gymnasts-a;_ylt=An1ui372MGkjFXBcKH7BvKJotLV_?urn=oly,101696 ) of the 2008 Games but were quickly hushed up by the IOC after it cleared China following a sham investigation (http://sports.yahoo.com/olympics/vancouver/blog/fourth_place_medal/post/IOC-orders-investigation-into-He-Kexin-s-age;_ylt=Ai8fthXAoA6Wm4X12jJ_HhFotLV_?urn=oly,1025 64) which basically consisted of the Olympic governing body asking China if they were really, really sure that the gymnasts were of age.

Honest and for true!!!!!
