Olympic Update:Child Cruelty,What It Takes To Win In China?
If this is what winning entails, I'll pass.I used to respect the discipline and enduring qualities in these guys when it comes to being healthy and fit, but this is cruel. Trust Americans to go Western world to dig up the dirt when a 16 year old Chinese swimmer out swam men's No. 1. A very rare feat! They are saying kids that are barely old enough to know what the Olympic means are brutalised and focefully turned into athletes!
Sickening! Why can't they just let these kids grow up to decide for themselves?
A diplomatic storm is brewing over Olympic swimming sensation Ye Shiwen. The 16-year-old was forced to deny using drugs after US coach John Leonard called her gold medal-winning performance 'unbelievable'. But her defiant pledge that the world record-breaking swim on Saturday - which saw her outpace the winner of the men's event - came from 'hard work and training' failed to defuse a doping controversy gripping London 2012
