Here is Kristin Babb Sprague who won one of the most controversial golds in Olympic history at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona. She completed a simple, mediocre routine which received inflated scores, particularly on the technical merit side. It ws such a controversial win she was later forced to share her gold medal with her Canadian rival Sylvie Frechette:

Ummmm. Just curious, but if the event is Synchronized Swimming and there is only ONE person in the pool, how do we know when she's out of synch? Personally, I think this should be replaced with the Tug of War event. Yep - used to be an Olympic event....

I'd vote for beer drinking contest as a replacement.
