NPR's Howard Berkes reports on U.S. athlete Paul Hamm. Ten days ago, he won the men's gymnastics all-around gold medal due to a judging error. A South Korean gymnast should have won. The International Federation of Gymnastics has asked Hamm to voluntary turn in his gold medal, and U.S. Olympic officials are furious.
