Dear US Gymnasts Amy Chow, Jamie Dantzscher, Dominique Dawes, Kristin Maloney, Elise Ray, and Tasha Schwikert,
Congratulations on winning the Olympic bronze medal for women's team gymnastics! In 2000!
You've got to give the IOC credit for staying on the case for nearly ten years to prove that China fielded an underage gymnast, but they got sufficient evidence, and now you finally rise from fourth to third in the official rankings and get the medal you earned.
I'm just curious--how did you find out about the news? Did the medal just show up in the mail? Does this help ease any disappointment you might have felt at the time, or did you have "we almost had it" feelings over the last ten years? What did Bela say?
At any rate, it's nice to know that justice was served, and that the situation was made right.
