This just about says it all, doesn't it?
We're huge Olympics fans at our house, which has not helped with new-baby exhaustion issues. We don't normally have TV, but every 2 years we get it for the month of the Olympics and get ourselves glued into the action.
It sure seems like every day there's some new China-cheater scandal, doesn't it? It's pretty pathetic that someone can land on their knees during a vault and still get a bronze medal, while another person can land her vaults perfectly and not even reach the podium. I think it's sad that appearance and saving face means more than honesty, and even sadder that so many Chinese athletes have such pressure on them to perform -- this article makes me so sad.
