Gymnastics, wrestling, boxing, skating,weight lifting are popular sports in the eastern bloc nations. The life in some parts can be bleak with very few opportunities for people. Sports, especially Olympic sports that make people national heroes and set them for life are given great importance. People start training their kids as young as three and they compete aggressively before they hit puberty. Its similar in China and other nations too.

Nadia Comeneci was only 14 when she set her Olympic records. Many of these athletes burn out by the time they hit their twenties. Studies also showed psychological issues due to a lifetime of competition. Thats why the Olympic committee raised the competing age to 16, in the hope of reducing teens pressured into competitive sports.

However, China and Eastern Europe are suspected of faking birth records. For most people such treatment of kids is shocking and appalling. People find it wrong that parents use their kids that way. But many people say that its their only shot at hope, and even kids often say people who have it better do not realize how important such competitions are for them.

Nevertheless, its unreal for children to be treated this way and no matter what the circumstance - its unfair to deprive them of their childhood. Unfortunately, such child prodigies will continue till government, society and general life improves in Eastern Bloc nations.
