Paralyzed at the 1998 Goodwill Games in New York, former Chinese gymnast Sang Lan filed a $1.8 billion lawsuit Thursday against USA Gymnastics and Time Warner, owners of the Goodwill Games. The lawsuit, filed in federal court, accuses the national federation and the event owners of failing to obtain proper insurance.

Sang suffered a fall on vault during the warmup for the event, landing on her head and leaving her paralyzed from the chest down. Click here to read more.

Law suit?
Shouldn't she be suing the Chinese Gymnastics Federation or the Chinese Government for sending her un-prepared to compete at that high of a caliber and incapable of performing the exercise needed to compete? Sue her coaches for ill preparing her???
