“All is fair in love and war—and competition.” At least, that’s what some people feel and some countries. We are seeing it on more than one front right now.
The excuses we hear are: They look young for their age; their passports show they are sixteen. Riiiight. Well, I look young for my age too, but this is insulting. And these are government passports, need I say more?
It’s a shame that a country who chooses their athletes when they are toddlers, impels them into state-subsidized training, deprives them of their childhood, etc. should be allowed to host the Olympics.
Don’t know about you but I didn’t like it from the get go.
*Just so you know, I removed their make-up in this picture. Right up front, don’t want to be accused of cheatin.’ Wanted to see how they “really” look.*
