I agree that the atrocities committed before and during the Chinese games gave more proof of the cruel and misleading nature of their government. And I felt personally betrayed that the footprint fireworks and the young girl singing were faked. HOWEVER, that does not give the right to Phayul to fake information. I was disappointed and dismayed to see that (at least) some of this article had stooped to the level of the Chinese government in condemning them. About the tie-breaker that was "So complicated that no one in the public was really informed how that decision was made": that is an outright lie. The commentators on NBC showed onscreen exactly how the tie-breaker worked. The lowest scores of each of them were dropped, until He turned out to have the higher average score. The score of the Australian judge and the tie-breaking method itself were questioned, but some judges just score low and the tie-breaking procedure was written into the rules _before_ the competition. It is also either complete ignorance or falsification that the IOC has not questioned He Kexin's age. After the data the hacker found, the IOC is requiring the He's age be further examined. I really don't see how any news media could have been oblivious to that. Because of these two glaring errors on perhaps one of the most covered events in the olympics, I have trouble believing the background information provided in the article as a whole.

Bravo! Jamyang-la. Once again you have revealed the truth.

This was not an International Olympics. This was purely a Chinese Game to hide a devilish face behind a show of good face.

True to your words and what missing is those 800 naked pap personals wearing only diaper and left beneath the olympic studium for for eight hours for a fake show.
There must be 51 really sad stories behind 51 gold medals; that is for sure. Poor Chinese, what not their government and great red party forcing them to do.
