Stupid idea

Starting January 1, 2009, the International Gymnastics Federation is going to issue licenses to all gymnasts representing their countries at most international meets.

This will supposedly  “give the FIG proof of an athlete’s age long before he or she shows up at an Olympics or world championships.” Um, how is it going to do this? The birth date will be based on passports, so any country that wants to cheat can do what China did at the Olympics this year.
