Did anyone else notice that in the coverage of rythmic gymnastics (it was on Bravo), there were 2 high ranking gymnasts who were just coming off of drug-related suspensions. In both cases the women were banned for taking diuretics. That's sort of sad. Little Girls in Pretty Boxes indeed. Any other sport and it would be steroids or stimulants.

Sadder still -- in the commentating (which wasn't great but at least Al T. wasn't there) this was treated as a completely matter of fact thing. No "it was such a huge scandal" no "setting bad examples for young rhythmic gymnasts everywhere." Simply a "she was afraid that she might have lost some fans because she was out of the spotlight for so long."
