There were digital scoreboards inside the gymnastics venue at the 1976 Montreal Olympics, where the numbers would pop up after each athlete completed an event. And even though a perfect score would be a 10.00, the way the scoreboards were set up meant the highest score, in theory, that they could reveal would be a 9.95.

Study says US doesn't get value from WADA contribution
Congress asked for a report on WADA's operation when it approved the funding for the agency as part of this year's appropriations bill. WADA's annual budget of $37.4 million is funded half by governments across the world and half by the International Olympic Committee. The U.S. contribution, Fitzgerald said, is part of a regional funding formula that the U.S. helped develop in concert with other countries in the Americas. The report comes as the Senate considers a bill that would strengthen U.S. law enforcement's role in combating drugs in sports. The Rodchenkov Act has passed through both the full House and a Senate committee on voice votes and is awaiting action in the full Senate.
