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.

I think the point is that nothing happens in a vacuum. Everything that happens after the scoring error is unique. You just can't go in arbitrarily at any one point and change something and then say the end result is valid.
How would Hamm have responded if the Korean had gotten the correct scoring? Would he have done even better on his last two rotations or would he have folded and choked? No one knows. Good, bad or indifferent the competition is over and thats it.

A side note to my fellow hockey fans. The crease rule was stupid when pen first hit paper. I always hated it and I play goal...Pete
