Let's get Wendy her gold medal

There were clearly four medals available to be awarded in Wendy Houvenaghel's event.

Why don't we ask Mary Peters to have a word in Seb Coe's ear and arrange to have that fourth medal awarded to Wendy.

There is precedent. When England won the World Cup in 1966 - remember? - there was no subs bench so only the eleven players on the field that day received medals. However, three years ago this miserly attitude was revoked and Jimmy Greaves and all the other members of the 1966 squad were retrospectively awarded World Cup medals.
