Gymnastics: Realm of Teenagers and Dirty Old Russian Coaches

I stared at Shawn Johnson's butt the whole time, the nice tautness and the subtle toning... then I stared at Nastia Liukin's wonderful pinkness the rest of the time. Then I was revolted. Then I was informed, don't worry, Shawn's 19. While Liukin is 18 (that's workable!), I discovered that Shawn Johnson's age was a lie (she's 16). I was lied to.

I now feel ambivalent toward the sport.
