Chinese gymnast update

More evidence is surfacing that the Chinese government lied about the age of at least one of the female gymnasts on its gold-winning team. Those crooked government officials can change passports, but they can't irradicate all the old news stories listing the girls' ages as something else (13 in one case!). Behold the power of the press.

True, but the real question is will the IOC enforce the rules as totally as they do for drug offenders. I'm betting that they will slap the Chinese on the wrist because they don't want to upset them. I hope they do the right thing, but I'm not holding out much hope of that.
