Yep, the story just crossed the news wire.
BEIJING (Reuters) – The International Olympic Committee has ordered an investigation into allegations Chinese authorities covered up the age of a double gold medal winning gymnast because she was too young to compete.
He Kexin, who won team gold in artistic gymnastics and an individual title on the asymmetric bars, was registered as being born on January 1, 1992.
There have been persistent media allegations that He had competed in earlier tournaments under a later birthdate, and on Thursday an American computer expert said he had uncovered Chinese state documents that proved she was 14 and not 16.
An IOC official said the International Gymnastics Federation had been asked to investigate because of “discrepancies” over He’s age. Gymnasts must turn 16 in the year of the Games to take part.
