An investigation has revealed an Olympic gymnast may be stripped of her medal from the 2000 Games for being underage. From the Seattle Times:
“Young gymnasts cannot be manipulated,” FIG president Bruno Grandi said.
A second gymnast on the 2000 squad, Yang Yun, also was suspected of being underage. But there was insufficient evidence her age had been falsified, and FIG said it was giving her a warning.
…Zhang Haifeng, the Chinese Olympic Committee’s press attache at the Vancouver Games, called the decision an “old story.”
“That was in 2000. Now is 2010,” he said. “This was 10 years ago.”
