A sidebar to the sad, incompetent performance of the Men’s Judges at the Athens Olympics (In my opinion they got the medals wrong on 5 of 6 apparatus and the All Around.) was a surprising letter of reprimand sent to Canadian judge Chris Grabowecky.
Two years after the Olympics, the FIG Appeal Tribunal over-ruled the FIG Executive Committee and the Disciplinary Commission. The Tribunal revoked the warning and, I hope, apologized for the error.
Chris is a friend of mine and I am happy to see his name has been completely cleared.
I continue to have no faith at all in the FIG Men’s Technical Committee under Romanian chairman Adrian Stoica. Expect more problems.
