Beijing Olympics … Chinese Admit Fake Opening Ceremony Little Girl Singing Scandal (Lin Miaoke & Yang Peiyi) … Maybe they can Admit Female Gymnasts were not 16


China deceiving the world with imagery over substance. Why should anyone be surprised? As beautiful as the Opening Ceremony was of the Beijing Olympics, they were just a microcosm of the present one image to the world while something quite different goes on behind the scenes.


Lin Miaoke  & Yang Peiy, a tale of two little Chinese girls and how their government deal with perception over reality.

By all accounts the opening ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics were considered a great success of amazing and beautiful lights, sound and imagery. However, we have learned since that some of it was not real. We learned that parts of the spectacular fire work display during the Opening Ceremony was fake.

The dupe was revealed by China’s Beijing Times. Speaking to the paper, the man responsible for the animation said he was pleased with the result.

“Seeing how it worked out, it was still a bit too bright compared to the actual fireworks,” Gao Xiaolong told the newspaper.

“But most of the audience thought it was filmed live – so that was mission accomplished.”

If anyone ever wanted to know what China wanted out of these Olympics all they have to do is see the “perfect” imagery scam to follow.

Lin Miaoke – the pretty face

Beijing_Yang Peiyi

Yang Peiyi – the voice who was considered unsuited to the lead role because of her buck teeth

Then we learn that the 9 year old little Chinese girl, Lin Miaoke, who wowed all with her singing was a fake as well. Chinese officials have admitted the fake scam of deceiving the public by using one girls looks and another girls voice.  Turns out that the Chinese had their own “Milli Vanilli” moment as the 9 year old was lip synching the lyrics. As it turns out, the voice used during the opening ceremony was that of another 7 year old who Chinese officials deemed not pretty enough to represent their countries image to the word for the Olympics. Literally, she was banned for crooked teeth.

We live on the Age of Fake.

However, if one thinks that the above Chinese “little girl” girl story was a fake, one also then needs to take a good look at the Chinese female gold medal gymnast teas as well. Olympic rules state they must be 16, are the Chinese under age? Chinese officials have denied charges that their female gymnasts were under age. Well, what would one expect them to do, admit it? However, as we have seen from the accounts above … officials have had no problem during these Olympic games of scamming the public.


Chinese gymnasts … 16?

Anyone can use their own judgement and common sense and put 1+1 together and realize it does not equal 16. Rules be damned to the Chinese. Anyone who watched the competition of the womans, in deference to the Chinese we should say “little girls,” team gymnastic competition knows very well that many of the Chinese were in no way 16 years of age. After all, how many 16 year old do you know are missing baby teeth?


What did you expect? Any country that would lip-synch out a 7-year-old singer because she wasn’t cute enough for the opening ceremony wouldn’t hesitate to use underage children to capture gold medals. That’s a no-brainer. There is what you see and there is what really goes on in China, and what you see at these Games, the image they project, is as precious as oxygen to the New Emperor of the Planet. Who cares if a gymnast is so young she is, as one critic charged, “missing a tooth”?


The Chinese Gymnasts: Age Questions Remain

What’s a little doctoring of some papers and passports for a totalitarian government when gold medals and world perception are at risk?

According to their passports, which determine Olympic eligibility, He Kexin, Jiang Yuyuan and Yang Yilin are all 16. But Chinese online records and local newspaper articles have presented different information, raising questions about these three gynmasts’ true ages. A 2006 biography from the local sports bureau where He was registered gave her date of birth as January 1, 1994, which would make her 14. A story earlier this year in the China Daily, the country’s largest English-language newspaper, also reported that she is 14 years old. Another local-level competition roll had the date of birth of Jiang, who is only 32 kg (70.5 lbs.), as October 1, 1993, making her also 14.

My Chinese girls have come a long way baby … From One Child policy to exploited and put on a pedestal.

But they won. That’s what matters here. If you’re looking for outrage, remember that not long ago, with its One Child policy, little girls were in danger of being killed over here or, at the least, shipped out for adoption. Now, in service to the state, they are on a pedestal.

      Aw come on… imho there is nothing wrong with the way the real singer looks. In some ways i think shes a cuter kid.

      The gymnast thing has to be a scam. Their own government newspapers even listed them as younger earlier this year it was reported. They must be products of superior genetic engineering on top of age falsification.

      Absurdity of china. One should go check out the court ruling from Nanjing where a man was fined fourty five thousand RMB for simply aiding a old lady fallen from a bus! The reason given by the court? “All men are evil under normal daily circumstances, the man here must be feeling guilty when he offered his help, thus the culprit in the old woman’s fall!”

      So what if it was “lip syn”.
      The point is: It was a ” Pre-game show ” and not the little girl’s live concert.
      And in some movies the real singer is not the real star singing.
      It was not such a big deal. A big deal is if someone is caught doping, no ?
      Personally,I think either little girl will be just fine. I am proud of both little girls.

      About that age question ( gymnasts ): If these girls are indeed 13 to 14, then they are putting themselves AT A DISADVANTAGE by sending less experienced athletes.
      Look, they are not complaining when they lose to an older athelete , nor are they arrogant when they do win.

      Hey, maybe in future athletes should get bone age Xrays done to verify their age on top of having their urine checked for dope.

      Again, competing under age is NOT gaining advantage on you. ( Assuming they are under age ).
      ( And in 4 years they will be that much better ! )

      And I suspect that even if everthing IS done ” properly ” many people will say ” Aw, it can’t be real “.
      If only I could send a message to the Chinese government : Don’t try too hard. Never mind what the West thinks. All the little girls are just fine.
      SM: You just showed how much character you actually have. Let’s just hope you have no children.

      You are an absolute fool and have no concept of gymnastics if you think that competing at age 13-14 is not an advantage. There is a reason why one is considered almost over the hill at age 20. In gymnastics it becomes a detriment when a woman’s body matures … just the opposite from mens gymnastics. Notice the Chinese had no 15-16 yo’s on the team.

      They cheated … and as future posts will show, shrubbed internet sites and altered birth dates.

      The idea that you think its ok speaks volumes of yourself. You should also think its ok for the athletes to take pperformance enhancing drugs … why not, what the hell … its only a rule.

      SOUR GRAPES is the false denial of desire for something sought but not acquired; to denigrate and feign disdain for that which one could not attain. This metaphor originated from the fable The Fox and the Grapes by Aesop, where the protagonist fox fails to reach some grapes hanging high up on a vine, retreats, and rationalizes that the grapes are probably unripe anyway. The phrase is sometimes also used to refer to one expressing, in an unsportsmanlike or ungracious way, anger or frustration at having failed to acquire something (i.e. being a “sore loser”), regardless of whether the party denies their desire for the item (e.g. a hypothetical girl Joumanna being jealous of the fact that no one buys her lunch). Not including the denial of desire is technically a slipshod extension of the metaphor because it is inconsistent with the phrase’s origin in the fable and the notion of the grapes being declared “sour”.



      SM: You have to love people who defend fraud and cheating with the accusation of sour grapes.

      There is a thing called rules.

      No one said that the productrion of the Opening Ceremony was not great. You do realize that Milli Vanilli were stripped of their Grammy Award right?

      In my world toots, it is unsportsmanlike to CHEAT!

      In the ancient games, when someone was caught cheating, they were fined (so many drakhmai back then) and the money was used to erect a statue of the cheater in a prominent place at Olympia as a warning to others – sort of an ancient Olympic’s “Hall of Shame”. And many in the modern world think the ancients have nothing to teach us……

      This incident shows how obsessed China was with perfection and beauty at the Beijing Olympics

    9. Taylor on August 15th, 2008 9:22 pm

      Ok,I know that Chinese government is harsher than America, but forcing a 7 year old to sing and not get any credit? And then let a “pretty” girl who didn’t sing well pretend to perform and get all the glory. I mean come on?! Telling a little 7 year old “Oh,well you sing very well,but you can’t perform because your teeth are crooked and we find that unattractive.” Aren’t adults supposed to teach kids that they are all gorgeous in their own way? Personally,I thought that the girl who sang was adorable! Sure, the one who lip sung the song didn’t have crooked teeth,but so what? Madonna had a huge gap between her teeth and she used to be one of the most popular singers. No one told her not to sing because of her teeth. So, what gives people the right to tell this little girl the opposite? they were sending the girl mixed signals. Telling her that she was an amazing singer but was ugly.This disgust me.

    10. Zhang on August 17th, 2008 11:19 am

      The point is, the government eagerly admittedly used the show as a display of the “new face of the country”, yet unfortunately, it used fake images to do it.

      This is saddening more in the symbolic sense. The government was taking so much pain, including faking and covering up, to paint a deceiving face of China. If it has accomplishments to show, why not just be truthful??? Not confident that the truths are good enough?

      It is the fact that faking and covering up are typical practices of that GOVERNMENT that made these revelations more newsworthy and noteworthy. Yes, it cheats, by showing a false image. It always does! Trying to fool the unsuspected and trustful eyes inside and out of China. That’s what’s outrageous!

      And yes, it is very upsetting that the 7 year-old girl was told she was not pretty enough to be onstage. Sad for the other girl, and all kids, as well to be taught that a pretty face is all that matters.

      Not to say that, the 7 year old is lovely and charming in her own ways (What’s wrong about a 7 year old having imperfectly lined teeth anyways?). And after all, it’s a singing performance, and she has beautiful voice!

      BTW, I don’t agree with some articles regarding the issue blaming it to “the Chinese/China”. It’s the government. Remember the government controls everything there? Especially for an event like this. Or especially THIS event?

      The government doesn’t represent “the Chinese”, or China in that matter.

      Innocent Chinese people were/are decepted too. The more innocent, trustful you are, the more you are misled to believe…That’s the true devil in the government’s cheating and faking. The government is a shame to the Chinese people!

      What sort of moral/ethical compass do you think these young girls have as a result of this experience? Where winning gold AT ANY COST (including cheating) is all that matters.

      I wonder how this achievement will hold up in their eyes as they mature, knowing, in their hearts, that they won the gold by cheating? Will their conscience kick in at some point?

    12. Jon on August 17th, 2008 9:18 pm

      I am immediately going home and break all the dishware I have that was “Made in China” I will be able to tell because they’re all chipped.

    13. Jo on August 18th, 2008 8:07 am

      Although China may have changed the girls and also have under aged competitors. Think about what they were/are trying to bring to the world. Yes, it is wrong to tell a young girl she isn’t pretty. But when you look around you have you not done such harm? In China Honour is the most valued. The person who said they will break all their dishware I hope you have a great feeling doing that. Think about it, if you’re angry at China remember China produces most of your clothes, appliances, stationery, etc. Did you know Chinese people make these things and get paid very poorly. You buy these “wanted” items and have you ever thanked China? You should look at this concept further. If you are not satisfied about China’s ceremony opening or you are angry about the scandal. Try having your own Olympics, wouldn’t you want the best? As millions even billions of eyes are on your country.

    14. Janice Smith on August 18th, 2008 11:07 pm

      Give me a break…All of sudden “American” outrage — What sort of moral/ethical compass do you think these young girls have as a result of this experience? — COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS! You seem to think you have higher moral standing than the rest of the world…exactly my point with your Milli V example — let me include others to remind you of how high the American moral standing is…Marion Jones (5 gold medals, Sydney Olympics – SHAME!); Antonio Pettigrew (1 gold in Sydney and 1 gold in World Championship — SHAME!); Fred Lorz (took a car in the last 9 miles of the Olympic marathon – SHAME!) ; Tonya Harding (need I say more — to fellow-American at that! Embarrassing!). I can go on with all the other baseball, marathons, basketball, boxing cheats that have come out of your country. You are just the same as all the other cheats that have happened in sports all over the world. And you gripe on the opening? Using a prettier girl? HA! The makings of American Hollywood I tell you! As for those who will throw out all your Chinese ware…go ahead…who’s stopping you. I dare you… Let’s see what’s left in your house after that clean-up. Get over it people. You talk about China this and China that… but all your American companies are moving all their manufacturing into the country and guess what, you are buying all of it…America is China’s biggest market, after their own population that is, and believe it, it will not change. So please do not talk about moral this and that — before you care about the young girls in China, think of what kind of exploitation your culture has done to your little girls — from your Britney’s to your Lindsey’s, your bulimias, anorexias, pedophilia, incests, your drugs, prostitution, suicide cults, snipers and school rages, your Gossip Girl sex and drinking binges — all worth reminding you that you are not saints in any way. So they changed the girl — big deal! That’s Hollywood speaking here and you know it. Of course, cheats shouldn’t be tolerated, but this isn’t cheating, its just a show, and as they say, the show will go on…


    15. Janice Smith on August 18th, 2008 11:12 pm

      Oh and pleeeaaassee…. like you can even tell how old an Asian girl really is… GET OVER IT! We all look younger than you, we all have the genes to look younger that you. They still card me in bars and clubs, and I’m 38! I can tell anyone there I’m 21 and they’d believe it. Another SOUR GRAPES perhaps on looking old compared to Asians…RIDICULOUS!

    16. carolyn freeman on August 19th, 2008 2:48 am

      I will never watch the olympics again as they have sold out like this is the super bowl……”China was the highest bidder” So they are getting away with anything…..absolutley disgusting! From the fake singing because the little girl wasn’t cute enough to the underage gymnasts….to the unfair/bias scoring: I will never watch again!!!

    17. ssl on August 24th, 2008 7:29 pm

      First off, I agree with Taylor and Zhang.

      It is horrible how the Chinese government will do such cruel things just to protect their “perfect image.” Well, now we know what the government is really like.

      I simply can’t believe that they would force a 7 year old to sing and not get any credit. They are willing to brainwash kids into thinking that it’s okay as long as you are “honoring” your country.

      And worse, they went so far as to use another girl just because she was “cute?” Oh yeah, and did the government mention that she was LIP SYNCING and the girl with the real talent wasn’t allowed to show her face at the ceremony. I mean, for crying out loud, this is the Olympics!

      I guess it’s not fair to put the blame on all chinese people, because there are also some very decent people in china.

      But for those of you who think this is okay, just know that this is the opposite of okay. This is sick, and it’s disgusting how low the government will stoop for a “perfect image.”

      Sacredmonkeys- thank you for this article, and thank you for opening my eyes to what’s really behind china’s “perfect image.”


    18. Yea I said it on August 26th, 2008 11:34 am

      Man the little girl was cuter than the one who protrayed to be her. Man chinese are sly snakes. They had the olympics there and they cheated!!! Those cheaters…I knew when I was watching them that the chinese girls looked too young!! LOSERS!!! FAKERS!!! man….they are stupid

    19. HM Cheng on August 27th, 2008 9:33 pm

      Did you say anything about the faking by the Sydney Orchestra in the opening of Sydney Olympics? The Australians said it is normal to fake the show.

      You only blamed the Chinese for lip-sync.

      Double standard racist!

      Hey Janice Smith. Your 38 years old and you are so so negative and immaturity has gotten into you… You sound so racist toward the Chinese and what Jo said was right. We never thanked China for making these products that they have produced for us in America. And you’re really sounding like a kid right now… Werent you amazed by the Olympics? And if you don’t wanna go to the Olympics anymore, no one’s gonna stop ya and guess what? no one cares. I mean for the opening ceremony, wow I never saw other countries do something like that, having millions of ppl in that arena. And it wasnt done by technology as so it seems. but millions of ppl doing it together.. y does china go through this trouble? As you guys said the “perfect image,” so maybe China wants to make it perfect, and? China and America is different and they all have different values and traditions. China has long history than America.. go back to school and learn some more history… But the perfect image isnt what it is all about.. Y do they have millions of ppl doing that opening ceremomy? It is because its one world and one team and thats what they believe in… One of China’s belief is togetherness and its all about one big happy family… and what they did there wasnt’t fake or a hoax… it was ppl.. sure sure.. they chose the other girl over the other one… so? would other countries do that too? Im sure they would… the media is a hoax u noe… it is the media that portrays the “perfect image.” Here is an example, Do you think America will ever portray a model that’s ugly, fat, anorexic, old, or short woman as sexy and appealing to audience.. America will say eww.. Gross, disgusting.. what is America thinking? So there you have it ppl. America alos has of you called a perfect image. So you can’t blame China for picking the cute and pretty girl.. And it is true that most Asian girls looks young. China never said that Asian ppl look younger than Caucasian.. And who freaking cares if u go to a bar and they check your ID? it’s funny that You can accept the facts and truths about other countries and badmouth the other countries? You’re just like the other ppl who cannot accept the facts and truth about America’s media and the economy and the fact of Asian ppl looking young. The American media has alot of things you dont know about… Look at Hillary Duff.. she’s displaying a perfect image… her face used to be puffy and cute… now she skinny and you can see her bones in her cheekbones!! look at lindsay lohan, britney, and all the rest of these celebrities… You’re getitng the wrong picture of China… You’re just blaming other countries for their wrong doings cuz it makes you feel better to do so. Why not take a look and put a blame on America.. look at the economy now… its bad… stock market is bad… stores closing… the bush administration.. war on iraq, terrorism, 9/11, bad things are starting to unravel in America and all you’re doing is sitting in front of your comp/tv and badmouth other countries… shame on you ppl… also chinese good isnt the only good thing you fool… take a good look at the world cuz in a blink of an eye… you will be history of the past… the world will also be history…

      To:#18.Yea I said it on August 26th, 2008 11:34 am and Scared Monkeys.

      You guys are pathetic little infants. All you guys care about is to make fun of the microscopic mistakes that other country makes. Its just a error that one of the Chinese officials made days before the opening ceremony.Big deal…honestly, tell me that you were able to spot the lip-sync while you were watching it live…I didn’t think so. You just heard rumors and started spreading-typical dumb American move. Guess what? The famous Luciano Pavarotti did a lipsync during the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy. And also if you guys had a little knowledge about music, then you’d know that it is basically impossible to create good sound effects in a stadium as big as the Bird’s Nest.

      I don’t even want to talk about the gymnastics because Americans are overwhelmed by jealousy
      and envy. First of all, the girls proved to the Olympic Committee that they are legal. So if you got something to say, say it to the Olympic Committee. Even if they look a year or two younger, atleast they don’t take growth hormones like Americans (ie. Marion Jones)to win their gold medals. They deserved it and IF they are 14 or 15, then you Americans should be even more ASHAMED of yourselves having your fat asses kicked my little Chinese girls in a fair competition.

      In conclusion, Americans make people sick. Their attitudes, their IQ, and even their food are disgusting. Why didn’t President Bush say shit to the Chinese government, because Americans are kiss-asses, they are going to kiss China’s ass for the rest of their lives.

      P.S. Don’t forget you are dealing with a fast developing country with over 5000 years of history. Guess what? Even a French restaurant menu is thicker than your American History Book.
      And yet all you guys do is go around picking on other countries. You pathetic little infants !
