Chinese Olympic Fraud

Don’t be surprised if this is the only place you hear about this:

A new chapter in the ongoing controversy surrounding China’s women’s gymnastics team opened today, as search engine hacker stryde.hax found surviving copies of official registration documents issued by China’s General Administration of Sport of China. The incriminating documents, expunged by censors from the official site and from Google’s document cache, still appear in the document translation cache of Chinese search giant Baidu, here (1) and here (2), showing the age of one of China’s gold medal winning gymnasts to be 14 instead of 16, the minimum age for competition presented on her government-issued passport.

  1. ARGH! See, that ticks me off. Not only do they lie about the fireworks and the singer, they’ve got underage gymnasts on the mats! Not fair! It has ruined the whole gymnastics session of the Olympics for me. Shawn Johnson and Nastia deserve so much more than they’ve received over there!
