And who's to say that if the Korean hadn't done just a little better on his routine it wouldn't have mattered what the starting score was? The judges screwed up and I feel bad for the guy, but Paul Hamm fell down on his vault. He didn't take a step or a hop, he fell. And no matter how well he may have done following that, he would not have been in medal contention if his competitors didn't make mistakes to allow him back in the door. Personally, if it were me, I would be so embarrassed, that I would not have brought up the start score. I would have just let things go.
