Totally Not Legal

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) confirmed to The Epoch Times thursday morning that it has asked the International Gymnastics Federation to investigate the Chinese gymnastics underage fiasco, following new evidence that at least two gymnasts competed under the legal age in the Olympics.

If the allegations are true, the Chinese team will be stripped of their golds, meaning the US will move from Silver to Gold. Somehow, the gold doesnt feel as good so much time after the event. But the principle of the issue deserves further investigation.
