At #8 we have another gymnastics controversy, only this one comes from this year’s Summer Games. American gymnast Joryn Wieber was the gold medal favorite heading into the 2012 London Olympics, and she finished 4th overall in the qualifying for the individual all-around gymnastics final. However, because of an asinine rule that says no country may have more than two gymnasts competing for the all-around title, the fourth-best gymnast in the world (on that day) did not make the finals. Whey? Because the 2nd and 3rd place gymnasts were also American. And Wieber wasn’t the only one who got screwed by this rule. Anastasia Grishina of Russia, Jennifer Pinches of Great Britain, Jinnan Yao of China also got bumped for lesser performances thanks to this rule.
