[Sexist] coverage is even worse for Ye Shiwen, the incredible swimmer from China who shattered the world record for the 400-meter medley. She swam the last 50 meters even faster than American gold medalist Ryan Lochte. But most of the talk about Shiwen has been that of suspicion and incredulity rather than praise and awe. Baseless rumors about drug use have dominated the commentary, despite members of the International Olympic Committee coming to her defense.
