The International Olympic Committee has determined that a Chinese gymnast was ineligible to compete in the 2000 Olympics and stripped the team of a Bronze medal, awarding it to the United States instead. From Bloomberg:
The International Gymnastics Federation conducted an inquiry, which found that Dong Fangxiao was 14 years old when she competed at the 2000 Games. Olympic rules require a gymnast be at least 16 years old in the year of the Games.
