Olympic regulations require gymnasts to be at least 16 years old, but
some of those girls I saw last night on the Chinese team appear to be
no more than twelve. Of course they do have official Chinese passports
to prove their age, so what can be done? Carbon dating? No, they're
far too young to date. Maybe we should saw one in half and count her
Olympic rings.
