    Ning Ze Tao is too pretty to achive anything in the pool for team China, He sucks!

    so this guy is probably retired when he is 24yr. and China swimming team is facing Dopping crisis right now. so who knows, and Plus This Olympic game is full of Scaming and dirty rules by those referees and IOC, Thats why China got backstabbed, and may Gold medals are stolen or removed by those “Dirty” rules which is never fair.

    Anyways, Right now the Grass roots Moive Star Wang Bao Qiang devoices with his Cheating Wife becomes top news, over the worst Olympic Games ever
    So keep eyes on Wang Bao Qiang please.

      You are right about the doping crisis in the Olympics, from which China is not immune of being guilty. The positive result from Chen Xinyi casts questions over the whole swimming team who would have the same medical team. The drug she was found positive for was hydrochlorothiazide, a substance that promotes the production of urine, thereby making detection of other banned substances more difficult.
      It raises the question of whether the rest of the team were just luckier in getting illegal substances flushed out of their systems quicker than she was.

      How can referees be facilitating any ‘cheating’ when many of the events have a clear-cut winner?
      Please elaborate.
      How is China being ‘back-stabbed’?
      Maybe the athletes are just not as good as those who surpassed them to win the medals.

      This is the same ‘argument’ any country could use.
      There was a team member from my home country found positive for illegal drugs and he was sent home – rightly – for trying to cheat.

      I suggest you read this:

    Well Alongside with China, Russia is obvisouly another victim, Their entire of tracking field team got banned from Rio game, not only that, since pilitical conspriacy made up by some Major English speaking western countries, like, US, UK, Australia and such, let this Rio Olympic game is more like a trap to the East; In past, China sports should always remain the position of top 2nd Gold medal and Overal medal list, but this year, we lost at least 20 Gold Medals by “back- stabbing “,even UK can easily reach up to the top, which is crazy! so same with team USA, cause there are no Balled up referees can make the fair judagement: since games like boxing, weight lift , fencing and so on so forth, I could have listed many sports in this “O-lame- pricks”, which Chinese athletes obvisouly won the final,however those bribe-taking dammed referees Made us to lose! who knows, if this Rio Olympic is clean or not; and so called those “clean-cut”winners just are lucky derivatives from a crooked political intrigue.

      Russia caused it’s own problems by supporting cheats.
      The Russian team was supported by the government in a program of cheating.
      They are the reason Russian athletes were banned

      Nobody likes cheating or people who think cheating is ok, especially at international level.

      Do you think cheating is ok?

      Maybe the Chinese athletes are just not as good as the other competitors – did you think of that?
      Maybe the other athletes were better on the day.

      People don’t deserve to win because they are from one country or another.

      I am not saying there are not cheats still trying to compete and win – Chen Xinyi tried and failed to cheat and there were others caught, but those who are caught deserve to be removed and not allowed to compete, and their doctors punished because without the help of the doctors it would not be as easy to hide for those who take performance enhancing drugs.

      Please read my comments and link before replying because it sounds like you a making a conspiracy, as I have read in the Global Times, out of wounded national pride which is meaningless in the broad scheme of things.

      Maybe in these games, China is having to face athletes that are just better on the day.

      That is life.

    I say we campaign that men’s gymnastics is done shirtless and wearing tiny shorts (think swimming suits). Imagine the ratings for that!

    Chinese should give up the notion that any atheletes owe them medals. Ning Zetao, together with other swimmers had done thier best, and that is the true spirit of Olympics. Swimming has never been the strength of Asians after all. Ning has still kept his Asian record in men’s 100 freestyle.

    But where is Nathan Adrian in this list?! I know he’s only half-Chinese, what with only his mother being from Hong Kong, but he’s hot, handsome, has the best smile, and gets bonus points for using words like “cognizant” in his interviews. (For those who’ve never seen American football players interviewed, let’s just say polysyllabic words are not their forte.)

      American football players sound very similar to soccer players in Spanish teams xD

      He graduated with honors from UC Berkeley, and his dad is a retired nuclear engineer. Not surprising that he can use polysyllabic words.

    May I add cutie Kato Ryohei to the list? A gymnast from Japan. But Ning Zetao rulez. And he is a soldier, too! That height, omg. Uchimura is married, so I would rather not try bedsheet gymnastics with him 😛 but Zetao could teach me to swim in sweat anytime haha 😛 (sorry for being explicit, but I just cannot help myself, too gorgeous)

    Folks, Talking about doping, between American Jim Crow and white people (Russian, East German and East European) doping, blacks were the biggest losers in sports until the 1980s. They say that no one could have beaten Cornelia Ender of East Germany with or without doping, but we will never know will we as American women never sent its best at least in track and field or basketball players until the 1980s. And in the 1970s the US women’s basketball team was all white and loosing to Russia every year by large margins and strange, after 1984 the team has been beating everyone in the World Championships and Olympics…go figure!

    And the biggest cheats of the Olympics are the boxing judges…


    Great example they set for the athletes and future generations.
