Re "After Crash Landing, American Gymnast Soars to Historic Gold," (Aug. 19): After Paul Hamm's amazing comeback in the men's all-round gymnastic competition, I find it sad to read about the poor sportsmanship displayed by Ioan Suciu of the Romanian team. He was quoted as saying, "The only thing I can say is that the USA got something more than it deserved." He was there and he knew that after Hamm's falter on vault it was anyone's competition to win or lose. Hamm, with nothing to lose, was in 12th place and decided to pull out all the stops. It paid off.
