Olympics judges and officials: incompetent and corrupt 

No surprises here. Anyway, after Paul Hamm won the gold medal in the men's gymnastics all-around over Yang Tae-Young, the North Korean and South Korean judges snowballed him in his individual event competitions (though he wasn't going to medal in either).

Common sense dictates that once a score is recorded and the next scores are posted, the previous score is final, since a difference in one gymnast's score can affect the next gymnast's performance by leading him to perform more or less aggressively. There's good reason for Yang's score not to be changed.
