With fast approaching Olympics, I want to share some of my thoughts on gymnasts - especially female gymnasts. Always, some countries dominate in this female event and that is fine. But, if you observe closely, these female gymnasts have, at least according to me, a miniatured physical structure (for their age) that looks to be some sort of a controlled stunted growth. There are also some rumours making rounds that these gymnasts are recruited very early in their childhood and given a stringent food regimen along with a strenous physical exercise for years together so that they can keep their body tiny and very flexible for the event. If these things were to be true - even partially, then it is gross violation of human rights. I solicit comments from the esteemed members of this forum.
