Believe it or not Chinas first gold medal in Olympics was fairly late; it happened on 1984. Since then, China reached on top of the medals list with 32 golds in the last Olympics, just four behind the US. Chinas formula to win the gold was to focus on low profile but medal friendly sports like shooting, rowing and weight-lifting, besides gymnastics and table tennis. China also focused on women athletes and groomed them because they were funded to a lesser extent by other nations. In short, China drove where there was less traffic jam!
In China, funds are poured into its sporting academies, and kids as young as six or seven years old are absorbed and trained to become world champions.

For the past twenty years, China had been meticulously planning for this day. Identifying talents very young and training them through militery regimen. They have been progressively doing well and it was expected that they would take leading position this time.

They have worked hard for this. Let us appluad and appreciate them

By using underage kids in Gymnastics. Why do they call it women gymnastics when we are all know that these are kids and not women. They should call in kiddies Gymnastics.
Mind you, this is not the first time they have used underage kids to work.
