China Stripped of 2000 Olympics Gymnastics Medal

In a follow up to our March 26, 2010 post China has been stripped of the women's team gymnastics bronze medal from the 2000 Sydney Olympics.  Gymnasts must turn the age of 16 during the year of the Olympics to be eligible.  Chinese gymnast Dong Fangxiao was found by the International Olympic Committee to be 14 at the time and therefore ineligible.  The team bronze medal will be reallocated to the U.S. women's team.
