PLEADED: American gymnast Paul Hamm took his case to keep his Olympic all-around champion gold medal to a sports tribunal in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Monday, arguing that he should not surrender his trophy to South Korean gymnast Yang Tae Young. At issue is a scoring error by judges in Hamm's favor during a parallel bars routine. Hamm, with one of his lawyers at his side, told NBC News on Tuesday morning he could not discuss what was said inside the Court of Arbitration for Sport during a session that lasted 12 hours. Yang also attended the session, and he and Hamm shook hands. A decision in the dispute is due within two weeks.
