It’s apparent that reviewing the tape has opened a bag of worms for gymnastics. For what it is worth, I believe that replay should be used to settle issues of fact, not issues of judgment. Yang Tae Young’s start value is an issue of fact. I suspect that Yang’s so called holds are an issue of judgment. If it is shown that holds are an issue of fact not judgment, then I’ll gladly reverse my position. But for now, I’ll stick to my guns. Paul Hamm may have won the gold medal, but Yang Tae Young deserves it.
