cha yong hwa


My favorite 2009 bar routine

So, North Korea's been sanctioned for age falsification again.

No restriction on Worlds competition this time, though.

Cha Yong Hwa is banned from FIG events through 2015. Her results and the results of any team she was on since August 2006, are nullified. To my knowledge, this includes:

  • 2006 Asian Games team silver, which now goes to Japan and South Korea gets bumped up to bronze,
  • 2006 Asian Games individual UB bronze, which goes to Miki Uemura of Japan
  • 2008 Asian Gymnastics Championships individual UB silver, now awarded to teammate Kim Un Hyang and the bronze to Miki Uemura
  • 2009 Summer Universiade team bronze, now awarded to Japan
  • 2009 Universiade individual UB silver, which is now given to Jiang Yuyuan and teammate Hong Un Jong gets the bronze.

North Korea, are you even trying?
