In the words of Carly Patterson... that's too bad.
Haha, she's actually 17 going on 18! And if they had just paced her better and given her a routine that wasn't so dependent on a 14 yr old body, she wouldn't be having all her sluggish moments. Sad.
Things like this support the age limit. When the girls are forced to wait until their bodies mature, they are more likely to have longevity to their careers. The Chinese girls are often burnt out by 17 or 18 years old, whereas the other top teams have more longevity.
She laid out on that jaeger alright.
Karma is a bitch.
It was hard to feel sorry for her last year and now this year. There was no way she was 16 in 2008 and, like evilapprentice said, karma is a bitch. (I do feel a smidge bad for her overall, though, since she is a product of a system that lies and cheats to get their desired outcome.)
she is still better then fat nastia,
nastia is SO out of shape now.
Poor He Kexin. But wow, she has such a lovely body now. Her thighs are shapely, a sexy curvature in her waist and hips. Gymnastics shouldn't be a pre-pubescent sport.
well thats what happens when you turn 14
She is a stunning bars worker. Wow. Too bad about the fall. And if she was underage in 2008 (yes, I think she probably was), I don't blame her at all. Seriously, imagine that you live in a communist country where the government can ruin your life and your family's life with a flip of the wrist. You do what you're told. And as everyone has pointed out, she was a little kid. Certainly not in a position to take a stand against CHINA. Was it fair? No. But come on. Not her fault. And even though she's matured, she is still incredible on bars. I'd like to see any of our girls even attempt that routine with those clean lines.
