Ye-Shiwen.jpegSo much is happening in London that it's hard to keep up - so many great stories unfolding. One shocking story first exploded on the third day of the Games, when Chinese swimmer Ye Shiwen was publicly accused of doping, and her gender questioned, by an American swimming official. In my Outsports/SBNation commentary, I remember when this kind of U.S. accusation against a rival superpower was first tooled up during the USSR during the Cold War.
