Resolving the Paul Hamm Controversy
By Mike Rappaport

Allen Barra on Opinion Journal argues that there should be a "do over": a one on one competition between Hamm and South Korea's Yang Tae Young. While Barra is right that this would be great for the public and ratings, I think it would be unfair to the athletes to have to compete again at this stage. Instead, I think Young should also be awarded a gold medal.
