Do you think China’s sixteen-year-old swimmer is doping?
It’s the first Olympic games for China’s Ye Shiwen, and the sixteen-year-old just smashed the world record in the 400 meter individual medley to win the gold. She managed to shave five seconds off of her best time, and she even swam faster in the final leg of her I.M. than Ryan Lochte did in his. Rumors of doping began when a commentator asked, “How many questions will be there…about someone who can suddenly swim much faster than she has ever swum before?” A spokesman for the Olympic Committee calls the rumors “sad.”
What do you think–doping or sheer talent?

why can’t she just be good at what she does? seriously, does anyone even know how long she may have been training for that? probably, most of her life. and so what if she wasn’t out of breath when she finished? there was a girl that went to my school and when we had to run in PE she beat EVERYBODY. boys and girls, as far back as i can remember. does that mean she was using drugs? uhh don’t think so. i will never understand why there always has to be speculation like that when someone is just plain good at something. so no, i dont think she is. but good grief, she’s obviously AWESOME!! wish i could do that!!

I think it’s a case of sour grapes, she’s been tested and retested. All medal winners get tested as do people who exceed expectations. She’s probably been tested more than most other athletes at the games.

Nawww, I think she just has natural talent. It is questionable to beat a men’s record but hey, there is a first for everything. She was amazing out there!

She isnt using performance enhancing drugs, the Chinese are using stem-cell research on their athletes, which has been proven to increase endurance, strength and accuracy. Its undetectable so dont expect them to test positive to drug tests because its completely different. Never in the history of sport has a female beaten a males WORLD RECORD, and to add on that, she wasnt even puffing when she finished.. doesnt take a genius to see the signs.
