Chinese Gymnasts Cheated In 2000 Olympics Too?

September 26th, 2008 filed in Olympics

It has been over a month since the closing ceremony of the Beijing games and the announcement that the IOC requested the FIG to investigate the ages of the Chinese Gymnastics Team. Apparently this scandal isn’t just being swept under the rug, because the Associated Press now has word that the investigation is ongoing and there is no timetable for when it will be finished. Furthermore, The investigation into the eligibility of the Chinese women’s team at the Beijing Olympics has been expanded to include members of the 2000 squad, which won the bronze medal in Sydney. FIG officials are examining whether Yang Yun and Dong Fangxiao, in particular, were old enough to compete in 2000.

From the article, “FIG investigating China’s 2000 team, too“:
“If we had a look at all the articles that came before, during and after the games, there were always rumors about the ages of China’s athletes in Sydney,” Andre Gueisbuhler, secretary general of the International Gymnastics Federation, told The AP on Wednesday. “We did not have another choice,” he said. “If we want to remain credible, then we have to look into things.”
