Worst Olympics part two

As I wrote last week, the 2000 Olympics was probably the worst Olympics in Gymnastics.  Today’s posts is probably the worst Olympics  for the Men’s Gymnastics. I completely stand by the results in that Paul Hamm deserved to win the All-Around gold. Why? There are several reasons. Yes he did have a fall but and it’s a major but, both Kim Dae-Eun and Yang Tae-Young had major errors and both were overscored. Yang Tae-Young’s parallel bars routine specifically was over scored considered he had several mistakes. For a better breakdown of the scoring, see Andy Thorton’s take on it.

Paul’s high bar routine is really spectacular. Watch it here or on Youtube:
