The Chinese team has taken gold over in Beijing easily beating the United States. Many believe that if the Olympics were being held in a country like the U.S, then these rumours of chinese gymnasts underage girls being used in a gymnast team would have gone a lot further by now.
Americans are asking now if there were any of the Chinese gymnasts underage that won gold at the Beijing Olympics today? In fact, gynmasts He Kexin and Jiang Yuyuan’s ages were questioned as possibly underage by the New York Times back in July.

The Chinese team “looks” to small, some 4 feet tall and 68 pounds. “They are using half-people,” Karolyi told the Associated Press. “One of the biggest frustrations is, what arrogance. These people think we are stupid. We are in the business of gymnastics and we know what a kid of 14 or 15 or 16 looks like. You don’t have to be a gymnastics coach to know what they look like at 16.”
