We don't know what might have happened if the Korean's routine had been scored out of a tenth higher start value.


News reports over the weekend showed had his score been based on the higher value, the South Korean would have won the gold. If you want I can try to find the article.

That may be true mathematically, but we don't know how it may have changed things psychologically. Who knows, Hamm might have been a little more perfect on his last apparatus, or he might have thought that any medal was out of his reach and failed to perform as well as he did.
