Should Norway get the golds from 1904?
« on: October 25, 2013, 07:39:56 PM »
"Norwegian sports historians have unearthed documentation seeming to prove that two American gold medals in wrestling at the 1904 Olympic Games should in fact have been attributed to Norway."

"Should the International Olympic Committee accept that an error was made, the two wrestlers would go down in history as Norway’s first ever gold medal winners. By rewriting the history books, the new development would also increase the country’s total Summer Games gold-medal haul from 58 to 60."
