Blogger Sparks IOC Investigation into Chinese Cheating


As noted last night Stryde Hax has pretty solid evidence that He Kexin is only 14 years old and that the Chinese government has been trying to cover it up as fast as they can. That evidence was collected from saved copies of the official Chinese government sport website which were recently purged in light of the accusations that they have been falsifying the ages of Olympic gymnasts.

The IOC is now investigating the claims.

Blogger triumphalism? Indeed. It's not often, but every now and then "citizen journalists" get things done.
