However, if anyone knew that piece of info, I’d expect it to be you, since you had the Kim Rhode answer, so you were obviously paying close attention to this years games!Now that I think about it, the games where they score that many points probably aren’t competitve enough in general to warrant TV coverage.

And that is how I interpreted it: the website gives thedefinitive answer on matters of classification. But this is not aclassification problem.

In fact, the person who submitted this answer was asked to justify it, and they said they thought Melbourne had hosted equestrian events when another country had refused to allow horses into that country. When pointed out that it was the opposite, the person decided that Melbourne was incorrrect and declined to support the answer further. And, in general, if you can’t support your answer in rare entries when asked, it’s going to get marked wrong.> > > >>9.

Yes, it was supposed to be an event, and yes, they said triple jump. In fact, people also listed specific events for equestrian and gymnastics. Fortunately, none of this changes any scoring.

Any revision will not affect the finishers in the top half; it probably won’t even affect finishers above the third quartile. It’s Harold’s call, but I don’t think this by itself merits a rescoring.

there was more evidence used. I’m just raising questions about the overall accuracy of oneparticular reference source which was consulted for the scoring.
