I do that to my daughter everyday for her Kung-fu stretches.
In fact we just finished.

These kids are just beginners.

People are suprised they did this???I thought it was common knowledge. I dont agree with it to some extent but then again in modern sport if you wanna be the best you have to start when your young. and the lad in the background on the first pic seems to be having a wail of a time!

The first pic is hilarious. The second one looks like the poor girl is being raped or something.


Women's tennis sucks.

They've been doing this for years and years. It's really a form of abuse but its not like anyone is going to stop it.

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

Ruthless exploitation. Shameful.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

When all of those kids get their gold medal and are seen as heros in China, I doubt they will regret that.

Nothing surprises me about China. The country is a factory.

What's wrong with this? Gymnastics is a very tough sport and you need to start young. These kids will be very happy they've gone through all this when they become World champions.

And what happens when they don't succeed? Remember, China doesn't have a very good human rights record.

Well, they will probably drop out of the National team Obviously not all of them will succeed and some of them will have to leave the team.
