I have to wonder what the fallout and consequences are going to be for the Chinese team. It's probably not going to be pretty...... :( :( :(
Most male gymnasts, it seems are stunted in all areas (voice, height), with the exception of Blaine Wilson. His voice seems fairly baritone. Bart Conner and Mitch Gaylord's voices seemed to get deeper after they retired. Kurt Thomas, now in his forties, makes exercise commercials, and his voice is fairly low.
