So are they all supposed to get together and have a big trade? Give me a break! Paul giving up his Gold medal would get him nothing. I doubt he would feel the way the columnist would like him to feel, he earned a medal, but giving his Gold up would leave him with none. She never mentions what the South Koreans should do, are they expected to give one of their medals to Paul?

Yes, something went wrong here, FIA should step up and either change the results or award another Gold (personally I doubt they would award a duplicate Gold since they didn't want any ties, just look at the can of worms they would open up after last night's apparatus finals.)

I just can't understand though how the rules could be so unclear. If South Korea complained at the time knowing that was the thing to do and were told to wait until after and they thought it was wrong, they should have thrown a BIG stink, instead they just said okay.

Final thought is, this was a judging error by a group, we shouldn't be asking one man to make up for their mistake.
