Ye Shiwen, Gold Medelist Olympics 2012

16 year old Mandarin Mermaid “Ye Shiwen” dominated the world in winning the 400 meters swimming event at the London Olympics.

I do believe in Mermaids, I do believe in “Mermaids”,

I Do, I Do, I Do !!

I don’t know about you but I sure spotted one of them last week at the 2012 Olympics. The 16 year old Mandarin Mermaid “Ye Shiwen” who blew everyone’s mind while she dominated the world in winning the 400 metres Olympics swimmers race. Then she did it again taking charge to her second gold by victory in the 200 m individual medley race.

Suspicious minds and accusations’ quickly started flying and soon right after one of the broadcasters, a well known coach on the air quickly stated “Her swimming was so fast it was actually disturbing to watch”.

Fascinating enough 1.5million tweets starting coming on Twitter attacking “Ye” by linking her to doping, while her father also attacked the 'arrogant' West over the insinuations. The storm raging around her did little to harm her self-esteem though the 16-year-old quickly denied accusations of using any kind of drug’s and was quoted saying: “My achievement derive from diligence and hard work, I will never use drugs. Chinese athletes are clean”. ……NOT

Good try but not entirely true as back in 1984 eleven Chinese athletes were tested for drugs and seven of them tested positive and they were stripped of their gold.

Miss “Ye” quickly faced an onslaught of questioning though it did not affect her as she was forced to under go drug testing. Speaking in her native language, she said at a press conference: “Of course I think this is a little bit unfair for me. However, I won’t be affected by this”

She knew she had nothing to worry about because Mermaids don’t use drugs, there simply unbelievably graceful and fast.

Shortly after that many athletes were tested by the international federations and the British anti-doping agency, though proudly not one of then came up positive with any drug related issues. “Ye” was shortly named Chinas “Super girl” but I say she should have been tested for gills.

Many animals have gills at some stage of their life (even humans have them at an early stage of their development in their mothers womb).

“Ye Shiwen” had been training for years for these events and was picked chosen to do this at an early age because she had an unusual masculine physique with extremely large hands and long limbs.

It’s no wonder “Ye” has been nick named “The Mandarin Mermaid”.
