[Sexist] coverage is even worse for Ye Shiwen, the incredible swimmer from China who shattered the world record for the 400-meter medley. She swam the last 50 meters even faster than American gold medalist Ryan Lochte. But most of the talk about Shiwen has been that of suspicion and incredulity rather than praise and awe. Baseless rumors about drug use have dominated the commentary, despite members of the International Olympic Committee coming to her defense.
they’ve done this to male competitors to so this is stupid and pointless
open your eyes
it happens to everyone, not just her. so instead of being “nope sexist coverage, sexist, sexist, sexist” stop and realize that holy fuck this girl really could have gotten illegal help
That’s so true. Remember that time that Michael Phelps won the gold in London and everyone freaked out and accused him of doping?
Oh wait, nope.
