Olympic gold medalist Paul Hamm retained his title as the world's best all-around gymnast yesterday after three arbiters dismissed a challenge from the third-place finisher. The Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland, rejected an appeal from South Korean gymnast Yang Tae Young, who wanted the competition scores and standings revised to give him the gold medal and Hamm the silver. The ruling closes the door on the two-month controversy and opens a window for Hamm on lucrative endorsement deals.

ATHENS - Paul Hamm did not medal in two individual events yesterday. It didn't matter that much, though. He still has his all-around gold medal. And no one will take that victory from him. Rejecting controversy, Hamm again proclaimed himself the all-around champion. The International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) responded to a South Korean protest Saturday, reviewed the competition and suspended three judges after determining bronze medalist Yang Tae Young was robbed of a tenth of a point last week on the parallel bars.

ATHENS -- Finally, Paul Hamm relaxed. Yesterday, he basked in the glory of his Olympic gymnastics all-around championship that he won late Wednesday, the first such victory by an American man. He reflected thoughtfully on his comeback win in one of the closest finishes in gymnastics history. "I did not sleep with it," he said of the gold medal hanging around his neck. "But it was right beside me when I went to bed." Shortly after his victory, he watched a replay of his horizontal bar routine that clinched the championship over South Koreans Kim Dae Eun and Yang Tae Young.
