[+9,563] I’m speechless. I respect the objective truth. It exists if it’s true, and won’t if it’s not. The truth isn’t something that can be changed by a patriotic heart. We can’t avoid a truth we must change and we shouldn’t either.
[+5,757] It’s more likely that she mistakenly injected it because hydrochlorothiazide is used as a diuretic and to combat high blood pressure.
[+5,374] As a Chinese, we must be patient! We shouldn’t rush to voice words just because of news that has been made public. The sacrifices made by athletes when gaining glory for the country are things that we can’t begin to imagine. Can’t we give them some time? Is this such a hard thing to do?

[+42] China is really trying hard on the Olympics
