1.72m tall, 64kg (according to Wikipedia)To hear she was faster than the American fella over the final 50m certainly raises an eyebrow! That and the fact she is HUGE!
Fair point but i meant more that she is very very muscular compared to her direct peers. Missy Franklin is very tall and obviously having never seen either of them in the flesh i can only build my perception based on the tv pictures.1.72m tall, 64kg (according to Wikipedia)
Small compared with Missy Franklin (also very successful young swimmer): 1.85m, 75 kg
The first thought that crossed my mind when I heard this story is that it's just sour grapes from the US coach because his drugs haven't worked as well as theirs, and he knows the Chinese woman must be on the sauce because it would be impossible for a clean swimmer to have beaten his own doped-up athletes.If you take that context aside, China does have a bad doping swimming record in the past, but the US has not exactly never had a doper either I'm afraid.
