Chinese “Women’s” Gymnastic team under scrutiny

Are the Chinese cheating by using underage gymnasts? Probably. I don’t much care.

This got me thinking, though. If they wanted to test for this (as they do for doping), couldn’t they use leg x-rays to determine the gymnasts’ ages? I don’t know how precise they are, but it certainly seems they ought to be able to distinguish between 13- and 16-year-olds.
