China Dominates Shaved Head Race

At USA-China men's hoops. (By Jonathan Newton - TWP)

While the mainstream press focuses on China's unprecedented push atop the medals table, the unreported story continues to fester like an oozing patch of razor burn: the Chinese are crushing the West in shaved headed creativity. My shaved head coverage has previously focused on the German basketball and their rings, a Chinese modern pentathlete and HIS rings, and some kids we saw in the Forbidden City with all sorts of Olympicana, but a quick search of the wires reveals that this story cuts far deeper.

Fan IQ has already put together a pretty comprehensive Chinese Olympic hair gallery, but I've got more. Lots more. Oh, and don't forget Mr. Chinese Olympic Tattoo fella right below. American government investment in glorious mascot body image development needed, pronto.

That 3rd picture (whatever you want to call it) is easily the best hairstyle of the year. And he's rocking the RED. I like it. I may borrow that for the Caps playoffs.
