I’m moderately understanding of cheating in the Olympics. It really is the peak of competition, and you can’t blame anyone for doing what they can to secure a victory that can have huge social and political ramifications. I can even understand cheating in the pros; there’s a ton of money at stake. But what if I told you one country cheated in a recent high school tournament? You’d probably just say, “that’s China for you.” And you’d be right.
A Chinese principal has apologized for cheating in an international girls high school soccer tournament. But I suppose if you’re going to cheat, cheat spectcularly. And they did. The squad was mostly made up of players from China’s national team.
