On Monday, American gymnast Paul Hamm appeared before the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland, to defend his Olympic all-around gold medal. South Korean Yang Tae-young appealed Hamm's victory after the International Gymnastics Federation admitted that a judge's scoring mistake had cost Yang the victory. In July, Brendan I.
