Intended Recipient:

International Olympic Committee and/or F.I.G.

Description:

According to the official Olympic rules, gymnists must be the age of 16 or turn 16 during the Olympic year to compete. Documents have surfaced that prove several of the girls on the Chinese female gymnastic team are younger than the required age. When confronted the Chinese government denied everything and tried to cover it up, destroying the proof of the girls ages.

The IOC has been trying to ignore the controversy so as not to "upset" the hosting country of China. But now they're 'inquiring' into it, handing it over to the FIG (international gymnastics federation).

Gymnastics officials said, the Chinese gymnastics federation must produce a birth paper, a passport and a hukou card, which is a family residence permit.

As of Friday evening, the Chinese federation had not produced those documents.

We want a fair Olympic games in Beijing! So help out and act now.

HELL YES, THOSE CHINESE HAVE BEEN CHEATING FROM DAY ONE, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM A COMMUNIST COUNTRY, AND EVEN THE JUDGES ARE BIAS TO THE U.S. SCREW THEM AND STRIP THEIR MEDALS, THEY WOULD DO IT TO US IN A HEART BEAT SECOND. I DON'T TRUST THOSE CHINESE AT ALL.

I have always looked ten or fifteen years younger than my cronilogical age. So at first I thought maybe this girl was 15 going on 16. When I read something about how her documents have her age as 13,15, and 12. I was really angry. More so because it was the united states media that was talking about it. The olympics just seemed to brush it under that carpet. I was pissed off that the american gymnists said they were ripped off before the news came out about the underaged china's gymnist.But they have been and something should be done about it. Host country or not! Injustice is injustice and should be fixed!
