China's Dong Fangxiao competes in the vault event at the East Asian Games in Osaka in this May 23, 2001 file photo. In a sport where most athletes are past their prime by the time they turn 20, the minimum age rule has once again split the gymnastics community after China were stripped of their 2000 Olympics bronze medal. An International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) probe found that Dong falsified her birthdate for the 2000 Games, and was hence younger than the minimum permitted age of 16, after registering different ages at Sydney and at the Beijing Games eight years later.
