IBTimes SportsNet : London Olympics 2012: Ye Shiwen’s Phenomenal Wins Ballyhooed as “Impossible”


This is my latest submission as a sportswriter/contributor for the International Business Times SportsNet.

In this article, I have discussed how the phenomenal 16 year old Chinese swimmer, Ye Shiwen was hounded by speculations and accusations of doping after winning the 400m medley in a very stunning fashion.

Some of the comments on her performances say “Impossible!” and “Insanely fast!”

Shiwen cruised to a world-record time of 4 minutes and 28.43 seconds; a clear five seconds aheas of her own personal best to surpass other swimmers for the topmost honors. And this morning, she added up to China's gold medal tally by winning the 200m individual medley.

These phenomenal performances by Shiwen have open up old issues about doping, especially among the members of the Chinese women's swimming team.

When queried upon this doping issue, the 16 year old sensation answered with an 'absolutely not' response. She added rather despondently, "In other countries, other swimmers have won multiple golds and nobody has said anything,”.

    Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring
    a blog post or vice-versa? My site discusses a lot of the same subjects
    as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

  7. I'm not sure exactly why but this site is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I'll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

    Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin

    Thanks a lot!
