Silver & Bronze winners challenge Gold

Paul Hamm's win is now being challenged. I heard this on my local news here as a commercial blurb, but can't find a link to the story yet.

Hi, Mark.

The claim is that the starting value assigned on of the routines of the third place finisher was 0.1 too low, so he should be awarded .1 more and the gold. The IGC says the result can't be changed. There were problems with the start values throughout -- remember the head judge telling two American gymnasts two days before the competition that their routines would be cut by 0.2 each from what they'd been valued at the world championships? There does seem to be a problem in that area...

Another blurb on my local news

In reply to: Re: Last story on NBC tonight...

was really nothing more than a comment by a newscaster so I still have nothing to link to, but the statement made was that the medals wouldn't exchange hands and that 'at the extreme' two judges would be suspended (assuming he was referring to the two that made the snap decision against the USA team in requiring a change in their routine the night before finals for their point start). If this is the case (the point setback imposed upon them), then the comeback was even more impressive, since I didn't completely understand the ruling when it was announced in the first place.

Judges may face sanctions.

It sounds as if there may indeed have been an error in setting the maximum value of one of the bronze medalist's routines (just as there was a mysterious two tenths devaluation in two American gymnasts' values two days before the competition -- due to a decision by the Japanese head judge, whose team unexpectedly won gold...) Meanwhile, the controversy about Piersol's temporary disqualification in the 200 backstroke has a fimiliar cast of characters, politically -- a French judge signaled a violation, but turned in a blank report that was then countersigned by a russian judge before the referee (from Singapore) also signed the blank sheet and then disqualified the American!

My kids swam compressively, and so we club members served as meet officials.

It wasn't easy to judge final touches at the wall as it was before the electronic stuff. The turns were by eyeball with a knowledge of the correct manner).

No way did that lane judge see an improper turn. The video proves that. As the silver medallist said, it was in retaliation for Piersal's earlier claiming that the Japanese swimmer had used an illegal kick on turning.
