16? Um no.


I'm sure most of you have heard about the "olympic scandal" surrounding the Chinese gymnast. Are these gold medal winners really gold medal cheaters? He (wierd Chinese name but whatever), who is listed as 16 at these Olympics, has also been listed as having a birth date of Jan. 1, 1994, on several online registries in China, including national registries compiled by the state sports bureau. He’s birth date was also Jan. 1, 1994, on the registration list for a 2006 intercity competition in Chengdu, China. Access to many of those registries have been blocked and MAGICALLY- her birthdate was changed to Jan. 1, 1992- or her birth date on them has changed to Jan. 1, 1992, since The New York Times first reported last month that He might be underage. Look at the picture- she looks 12. What do you think?

I'm going to go with 12...but the Americans can't challenge them on it because they might kill them. Seriously, I think it's a ridiculous situation.

Hey, if your hair was pulled back that tight you would look years younger too!
