So today news comes out that China deemed the REAL singer of “Ode to the Motherland” wasn’t cute enough to be on National/Global Television, so they brought in Lin Miaoke in to lip-synch the song while the real singer, Yang Peiyi was backstage.
Is this for real??? Come on!
What message are we sending out there by doing this?? This kind of deception is a kin all the drug testing that is taking place. We want to make sure that the proper image is put forth of all of our hard working athletes. Testing ensures that everyone is on an even playing field. By the Government of China deciding that Yang Peiyi was not cute enough to be put on stage and giving her a fake “face” is just as bad as an athlete taking performance enhancing drugs.
I know I might be going on a limb on this one, but that’s how I feel.Filed under: Olympics, Personal Log, Rant
