China's swimming swoon: Part 1

China's swimming swoon: Part 1

I need to make one correction:  I mistakenly credited the Chinese
4x100free relay with a bronze, when it was a silver.  Corrected
document below.

my apologies,

Ed

This is the first of two posts which put the performance of the
Chinese women's swim team at the 1996 Olympics in perspective.
The table below presents the medals won by Chinese women swimmers
in each swimming event at the 1994 World Championships and the
1996 Olypmics.  

Note the following:  

* At the 1994 World Championships Chinese women won 8 of 12 events.
  They failed to win only the 200 free, 100 & 200 ***, and 800 free.
  In the 200 free it took a world record by Germany's Van Almsick to
  beat China's Lu Bin (whose time also beat the previous world record).
  Lu Bin later tested positive for steroids.  

* China won a total of 18 medals at the world championships, with
  12 golds, 5 silvers, and 1 bronze.  At the 1996 Olympics the
  Chinese women won one third as many medals, 6, with a much greater
  emphasis on bronze:  1 gold, 2 silver, and 3 bronze.

* All of the Chinese individual event medalists at the 1996 Olympics
  are hold-overs from the period preceding 1995 during which nine***
  Chinese women tested positive for performance enhancing ***:

  Le Jingyi:  won the 50 and 100 free at WC, was second and first
              respectively at the 1996 Olympics

  Lin Li:  26 years old, was third in the 200 IM at 1996 Olympics.

  Liu Limin:  won the 100 and 200 fly at WC's, was second in the 100 fly
              at the 1996 Olympics.

Is this what the ROC defense force do for their work?????
Well, I had a friend who work for ITRI, he think that people at zhong ke yuan
dont do anything, and just waste money.  Like the supposely Independently
Developed Fighter, IDF, which most of the technology is brought from the US
F-16, and still stand for I Dont Fly.  If that is what the ROC Defense Force
do, then no wonder that is the case.
