    The IOC is now investigating the 2000 and 2004 gymnastics in addition to 2008.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    Probably a result of the research they did on birthdays.

    2000 bronze medalist Yang Yun already admitted she was too young.

    It'll be interesting to see what happens. There have been several proven instances of age falsification in the past, but the IOC has never taken any action. In 2000 they took all-around champ Andrea Raducan's gold medal away from her because the Romanian physician gave her cold medication that contained a banned substance. The Court of Arbitration later ruled it wasn't her fault, but she still didn't get her gold medal back. The banned substance is no longer banned, by the way. So she doesn't get her gold medal, but the previous gymnasts that were too young get to keep their medals.
