I don't know why there is even a discussion about whether Hamm should give up his gold. There is no do-over in judging in most sports. I remember Maradona knocking in a goal with his hand in a World Cup match many years ago. Argentina won that match and moved on to win the World Cup. Nobody said Argentina should give up the cup or even that match in question. There are many similar no calls or blown calls in other sports. It is tough luck although I think instant replay could have prevented a lot of these snafu. But some people complain it will disrupt the "flow" of the game.

If they go back and look at the scoring for all the events, they would find out they were a tenth too high or a tenth too low here and there. There would be no end to it.
