    And she hasn't seen her parents in like 4 years. That's a pretty sick way of doing things.

    Underaged or not, they're talented enough to hang with the "big boys" aren't they?

    Doesn't it make the rest of the world look bad? They didn't win the gold AND lost to kids.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    Caught part of the US gymnastics choke, don't start crying when you **** up, it happens.

    The Chinese gymnasts look like sluts, lay off the makeup, they look like mini versions of Tammy Fae Baker.

    "Underage" is a relative term. The Gymnastics issue has been going on for months.

    Bela and others have said in numerous interviews that they take nothing away from the athletes and clearly they are talented enough to be there. The issue is the Chinese government that will deny its own birth registry and have people obviously lie on the power of falsified passports to win. Karolyi may have had girls who we're under 16 on his Romanian team back in the 70's, but that was BEFORE the IOC and the Gymnastics governing body created an age limit. All anyone has ever said was make it fair and boot the obvious liars or remove the age limit.

    Which doesn't mean that other American athletes are worse. It's just easier to collect 5 medals in swimming with so many disciplines. As I read somewhere couple of days ago, if athletics had 80m, 90m, 100m, 110m, 120m,... races, those sprinters would get most gold medals. How about giving another gold medal to the runner who is best in combination of 100m and 200m running competitions? And another one, who is best in combination of 200m and 400m running competitions?

    My point is, that you can say Phelps is the best swimmer in the world, but you can't compare athletes from different sports. He is not any better than winner of marathon or long jump competition with only one gold medal. They are all great.
