Come on Ben. Read the title, read the post again(maybe the 3rd time you can turn on the reading comprehension?), I responded to Terry's post and was talking about ramping up programs in general and the Chinese specifically. I did not and am not singling any one contestant out.
You attacked me because I didn't "celebrate" losing? I can see you have never competed in sports. Most people choose to cheer for their team and not celebrate losing. But good for you. I'm glad you like to.
This is far from a US issue as you claim. Go read foreign press after the US dominates again. Go look at the witch hunt the French carried out after Lance Armstrong dominated the Tour de France.
The swimmer in question sounds like a rising star. I didn't seen any questions about her cheating in the mainstream press right after the race. The closest anybody came was one announcer asking if there would be questions since she swam so much faster than ever before and that was from a bbc guy.
But honestly, as for doubting the Chinese in general? Well they have cheated before, they have no problem cheating in general if they can get away with it, so why wouldn't people question it?
stop the baseless accusations
I never complained about the US losing in basketball in 2004, because they played like crap and deserved to lose. I don't complain about Phelps losing because he hasn't worked hard enough to win. I don't accuse Kitajima of cheating when he owns Hansen because he doesn't come out of nowhere. I love to see amazing feats no matter who does them. I enjoy a perfect game even if it is against my team. I admire a great dunk by the opponent. Just because I don't gush over a chinese swimmer and laugh at Phelps losing, doesn't mean I'm a sore loser.
