Gymnasts Ages To Be Investigated!

So it appears that the IOC (International Olympic Committee) has finally asked the International Gymmastics Federation to investigate the ages of the Chinese gymnasts. Pretty interesting!

The bigger issue than the actual age of these gymnasts (in my opinion) is that if they are found to be underage then the country of China itself participated in document fraud by issuing them passports. I would assume if their ages come out to be altered, the young gymansts will lose their medals. But what happens to China itself? Thats what I want to know!

And the real question is - will an investigation even take place? While this whole matter simply get swept under the rug?
