Hosts China fail to qualify for final
The 2006 world champions were expected to battle it out with the United States for the top prize but a series of errors meant they failed to reach Wednesday’s final.
Did your reporter actually attend the Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Team Qualification event at the Beijing Olympics? Did your editor check facts based on the Ouija board school of journalism?
This story could not be further from the truth. Not only did the Chinese women qualify for the eight nation team final, but they qualified in first place.
Not only is this story entirely false, but was it was posted at 10pm LAST night before the team qualifying competition even started.
This story was transmitted in error, and was withdrawn immediately: GBU Editor
