    Chinese team has been disqualified in disgrace at the 2019 Military World Games in the Hubei capital of Wuhan after cheating at the sport of orienteering.

    Orienteering involves using a topographical map and a compass to navigate from point to point as fast as you can in diverse and typically unfamiliar terrain. In the Middle Distance competition on Sunday, Chinese runners finished in first, second, and fourth place among women and second among men.

    This impressive result was quickly thrown into question, however, when a protest was filed by the national teams from Austria, Belgium, France, Poland, Switzerland, and Russia.

    According to the International Orienteering Federation (IOF), it was discovered and proven that Chinese runners had “received illegal assistance both by spectators in the terrain, markings and small paths prepared for them and which only they were aware of.”

    Other rumors have alleged that the Chinese team even ran the course ahead of time.



    The Chinese woman who came in first, Li Meizhen, started orienteering late last year, according to a state media article that describes her struggles with using and understanding a map.

    “One’s life may not be a victory, and I just don’t want to lose,” Li is quoted as saying. “Orienteering resembles life which is always with fatigue and hope, difficulty and surprise.”

    The jury ruled to disqualify all Chinese runners from the event and not allow them to compete in the Long Distance or final relay competitions.

    Though the Chinese team appealed this ruling to the Military World Games, the decision was upheld.

    The IOF is actually hosting its World Cup later this month in Guangzhou. In case you’re worried about the sanctity of the sport of orienteering, here’s a statement regarding the Wuhan incident from the organization:

    The Military World Games is an event organised under the jurisdiction of the International Military Sports Council (CISM) but through a Memorandum of Understanding with IOF, the IOF rules govern the conduct of the event. The IOF takes the actions of the Chinese team very seriously and is pleased to see that the IOF rules regarding the fairness of competition were enforced by the jury and CISM and that the best solution was found for those athletes who compete within the regulations of the sport. The IOF will be investigating together with CISM how sanctions may be applied to those involved in the improper activities.

    Although the event is not an IOF event, the IOF is investigating if any further actions need to be taken to guarantee the fairness of competition at the upcoming World Cup final in Guangzhou, China October 25-29. Military and civilian orienteering in China are completely separated organisationally and the World Cup has been controlled within the structure of the IOF with restrictions on the access to competition information. There is also time to make changes to stop similar types of cheating. However, The IOF will be debriefing the CISM controllers and making further investigations into the nature of the infractions. If verifiable evidence of any improprieties are found the IOF will apply any sanctions necessary to guarantee the fairness of the competitions at the World Cup.

    The IOF Council will be meeting in connection with the World Cup final and will as part of the agenda discuss how the negative activities at the Military World Games may affect the IOFs support to developing Chinese orienteering and also the Memorandum of Understanding with CISM.

    Finally, the IOF wishes to show its appreciation to the clean athletes and congratulate the medal winners of the Long Distance at the Military World Games 2019.

    In the e sports community as well, Chinese are pretty, pretty well known for cheating and using unfair means to get ahead, so shocker? No.

    It's a cultural thing.

    Win by any means necessary, that's China for you.

    Seen it many times myself. No sense of fair play. Only winning matters.

    That is indeed the lesson. Historically losers have been ground into dust. Don't want to be ground into dust? Get good, get big, nothing is off limits.

    If Jared Ha fought fair against this aggressive criminal, he'd be braindead or on life support. Instead he almost killed the aggressor and now the aggressor shits into a bag.

    In 1991 Iraqi troops left Kuwait in accordance with UN Resolution 660, unilaterally withdrawing to pre-war positions.

    They were no threat to coalition forces and they had obeyed the UN resolutions.

    Coalition forces blocked them off during their withdrawal, shot the first and last vehicles to prevent escape, then carpet bombed them.

    Please remove your Chinese flag. China has problems like any other countries, but I can see your biased attitude towards China.

    Any countries have good guys, and bad guys. Label China bad is irresponsible and only show your true color.

    Huawei Ban is US standard "win by any means necessary, that's US for you".

    Please don't fly China flag. China flag win by the blood and lives our father, grandfather sacrificed, it's sacred. You don't deserve China flag by default, you can only fly the flag with your loyalty to your motherland.


    No country tolerates traitors.

    With that attitude people will not only spoil sports, but will be more corrupt because they would want to be rich by any means, steal, hack, and also might lead to more suicides as failure is condemn able. Does this attitude really make the society better?
    Take Japanese, they were devastated after war and what happened to them. They were competitive and rose from the nuclear destruction. They didnt feel the need to cheat to win, just sheer hard-work and talent.

    so how would you feel if another country intervened in an Indian conflict directly, and as India was obeying a UN mediated ceasefire, the other country launched a surprise attack and destroyed half the Indian Army?

    what about UK launching a reconquest campaign of India backed by some certain superpower ally? would you see that as fair, justified and that India should fight UK fairly? perhaps with a joust?

    what if some thug accused you of a crime and started throwing you into a concrete wall, bashing your head, and you had a weapon? Would you use it or fight the thug honorably with fists?

    I think you are confusing sportsmanship and war. Don't mix them up. And if you think they are synonymous its your failure of understanding.
    BTW doesnt China cheat in international politcs and warfare all the time. Says we are detaining terrorists in Xinjiang but then goes and backs and vetoes terrorist in UN. Thousands of cases of technology espionage by Chinese. So leave the war aspect of it. Focus on the issue of sports here. You dont have high ground on either.

    You know what, when and if Indians do, its shameful and condemnable. I wont be a morally bankrupt and arrogant person to go and defend such actions. Thats the difference :tup:

    I am not sure about the authenticity of this article, but...
    They got disqualified?
    OK, here is someone who didn't get disqualified but got into the semi finals:

    And do check the names like Lance Armstrong, Justin Gatlin, and Marion Jones, etc.. etc... the list of names will go forever...
    And this famous guy:


    This is not about communist or capitalist, not about religion or non-religion, not about Asians or Europeans, this is about --- humans...

    Chinese are notorious in education for cheating

    https://www.scmp.com/comment/insigh...86/why-do-chinese-students-think-its-ok-cheat

    Its cultural thing, cheat all you want, just don't get caught.

    Very true.
    They are notorious for stealing western IP or even selling poison to children in baby formula.

    The only morals is to make money, nothing else matters.

    It's the same thing. Can't pick and choose.

    Chinese are upright and moral. We have some of the lowest crime rates both domestically and as diaspora abroad. Where is the evidence?
