Oh! Lympics - China's gold

ok, first off, sacramone, can i just say that you took it all a little too hard. even if there was no balance beam or floor fall, the chinese were just way too far ahead. chill out girl. you got a medal. no tears baby.

now, the real business. dearest google reader shared with me today this article about how one of the girls on China's team had her age reported as 13 just nine months ago. and since we all know that there is absolutely no way at least two of those girls were 16 (unless they were using east asian age reckoning to count, and He Kexin's birthday is actually January 1, 1994, then she would be 16...but that's cheating), let's just skip over the content of the article and go to a specific paragraph. tell me this isn't confusing:

"If the age reported by Xinhua was correct, that would have meant He was too young to be on the Chinese team that beat the United States on Wednesday and clinched China's first women's team Olympic gold in gymnastics. He is also a favorite for gold in Monday's uneven bars final."

just to clarify. He is a she. hehe. i could do this all day.
