Unfavorable Scoring Denies Gymnasts

I really freaked out after watching the result of Olympics' gymnastics (Individual All-around). Now I'm reading an article on about the result.

Do you really think so? Paul Hamm is one of the greatest gymnasts. But the US is the biggest powerful nation in FIG as well as in the world. Any nations can't ignore the US and its people, right?

Why do you think it was fair for him to earn 9.837 and for a Korean gymnast to earn 9.475 on the high bar? You know no Japanese gymnasts didn't earn more than 9.837 on the high bar in men's team competition. Do you really think that Paul's performance was worth getting 9.837?

And you really know the fact that "In usual circumstances, one wouldn’t get a score more than 9.0, but it happened that way on Paul's vault."
