The Waiting Is Over

The waiting is finally over for Paul Hamm; winner, for the time being, of the men's gymnastic Olympic medal.

Today the Court for Arbitration for Sport will hear the appeal from the South Korean gymnast, Yang Tae-young, who is disputing the scoring of the event.

Needless to say, with both the Koreans and Americans vowing to battle to the end for their respective sides, the hearing could be every bit as thrilling as the actual event.

Indeed, the US Olympic Committee is sending a bevy of lawyers along; as well as spending $300K on defending their man.

The hearing will take place in Lausanne, behind closed doors. A panel of 3 wise men will hear the case, then make their decision.

However, no one knows quite how these guys will come to a decision; rumour has it they will examine the entrails of a goat.
