saw an interesting point on this today, the korean held himself still in hangin position, 4 times, only 3 is allowed.

he should've been penalized 2/3rds of a point(i could be wrong on fraction). so if judges scored it correctly, he would've received no medal at all.

maybe they should review it like hes asking and give someone else a medal who hasnt complained: i didnt get the bronze because the korean wasnt properly deducted points for improper routine.......

LOL- he wants to be credited for a tougher routine but wants them to ignore his errors.

IMO it isn't the same Keith...
the Koreans scoring error was MATH...
math errors can and should be corrected....
human/realtime judgement error has always been part of these types of scoring....

if it was an american who got the math scored wrong, you'd be howling and you know it...LOL

G that wasnt the error silly.

his points supposedly werent credited for the tougher routine that he did, he was deducted as if he were on a lesser routine.
He wants credit for tougher, so he should take neg. for screw up.

if you want me to get any more detailed, i cant, mens gymnastics just not my thing...

got the correction comment but.....

human error is also part of scoring, also, the fun is in winning then, not 3 days later after a computer double checks scores and some guy checks the puter and then...

you play, you win or lose, official screw up or not, was it oaklahoma that won that tournament on 5 downs, thats addition. the win stood to embarrasement but, thats always good, the other team could have stopped em on the 5 th down...
