Gymnast disqualified for falsifying documents

Questions about the Chinese women have been swirling for months, with media reports and online records suggesting that He, Yang and Jiang might be as young as 14. Gymnasts must turn 16 during the Olympic year to be eligible.

But new evidence has come to light about the eligibility of other famous gymnasts. It has been discovered that Paula Hunt and Se?ora Pauletta are not who they say they are. It’s obvious from the video below how talented they truly are, but the International Gymnastics Federation has some questions about their true identity.

Paul Hunt is a gymnastics coach noted for his comedic performances of women’s gymnastics routines, including the uneven bars, floor exercises, and the beam since 1980. He has performed on US and international TV. He started as a competitive men’s gymnast at the University of Illinois in the early 1970s, won the Big Ten Conference individual championship in the floor exercise in 1971, and had another win in the floor exercise in 1973.

Definitely not a contender for the Chinese girls? team, an acrobatic clown from his heyday in the 1980s and ?90s
