My grandmother once told me that at 4 years old she was crying during her family Christmas. To which her grandfather, from behind his newspaper quipped "nobody likes girls who cry over nothing".

China is almost her in this analogy. Except my grandmother learned to stop crying over nothing.

When does China ask the IOC to reverse the results due to the deep and hurtful nature and shame they have thrust upon the people of China by acknowledging Taiwan won?

It's 'Chinese Taipei'. Stop hurting the feelings of the ruling class communists.

Why not call them "Democratic China that emerged from Chaing's incompetent kleptocracy" and "Xi's increasingly Stalinist China?"

Setting three world records (long jump, 220y sprint, 220y low hurdles) and tying one (100y sprint) within the span of an hour in Ann Arbor for the glory of Ohio State still does not excuse shorts that short anywhere at any time.
