SniperJoe: I suppose that it makes sense. Steroids and other performance enhancement for the Chinese Olympic team and growth retardation drugs and false birth certificates for the Chinese gymnasts!
HellRaisingHoosier: I read a book one time about a Chinese Olympic swimmer. Essentially these people aren't treated as people at all, and just a number. They would pull them away as children if they showed promise at the sport, then set them up in intense training programs their entire life. God forbid if they don't get a gold.China is much too Machiavellian. The end does not justify the means.
