Personally, I say award two Gold Medals...but that's just what I think!
Much like figure skating, when two gymnasts tie...they don't award duplicate medals...there always has to be some kind of crazy tie-breaker situation that always seems to split things the wrong way!
Love Evan to pieces...one of my favorite skaters...no way should he have won Nationals. I was there...it was quite apparent who skated better. In the crowd where I was siting we thought Johnny had pulled it off by no less than 5-10 points. Then the scores...the tie...and Evan gets the Gold...ugh!
From St. Paul to Beijing...it's the Olympic Final on Uneven Bars. Nastia Liukin and He Kexin are dueling it out. Both have good routines...only Nastia's is better than good, it's great. The scores...the tie...Kexin gets Gold? Another crazy tie breaker.
Only in figure skating...tie breaking makes sense (most of the time). Evan won the free so he won the Gold (debatable...but understandable). For the Uneven Bar final there was this crazy if there is a tie instead of just taking the high and low scores out we'll take the high and two lowest scores and whoever has the best score then is the winner meaning (do you see how this run on sentence is just a nightmare!) that the outcome of the competition is based upon only three judges interpretation and two of the three judges has never even had an Olympic medalist in gymnastics in their country!
I'm not the biggest fan of figure skating's point system, but it certainly beats out gymnastics.
