1990s / Gymnastics Age Scandal - Kim Gwang Suk
Some people never age--at least in the world of women's gymnastics. Kim Gwang Suk was a North Korean gymnast who competed at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. She was also at the forefront of the one of the biggest scandals in her sport's history when it was discoverd she was listed as 15 years old for three consecutive years! (At that time, a gymnast had to be at least 15 to compete in senior events; the age minimum was raised to 16 in 1997.) Kim's petite frame fooled everyone, including the folks at FIG, the governing body for international gymnastics. They never did manage to obtain her real age. Nevertheless, the impossibility of Kim being 15 for three years prompted FIG to ban the entire North Korean team from the 1993 World Championships.
