In a recent interview with a German gymnastics magazine called Leon, the President of the International Gymnastics Federation, a.k.a. FIG, Bruno Grandi criticized the female Chinese Olympic gymnasts as lacking aesthetic beauty and being underage. Grandi said, “The Chinese gymnasts were robots. From a geometrical point of view the moves were very well done, but compare with the way [Nastia] Liukin performs a single movement with artistry. You can see how she continues to move through to the end point. The other is a perfect geometric figure. But a Code [of Points] will never be able to completely reflect aesthetic moment.” He went on to say that there was “strong circumstantial evidence” that some of the Chinese gymnasts were underage. Grandi is now serving his fourth four-year term as FIG President.
