In his more than 20 years of coaching gymnasts at an elite level Brestyan had never filed an appeal, known as an inquiry in the gymnastics world. He knew the process. All Olympic coaches do. Early on Tuesday, he went through the same pre-performance routine of neatly typing an appeal form in case it was needed since the rules say you have little time to file it after a score is posted. Then he put the form in a manila folder that he tucked deep in his brown, over-the-shoulder brief case.
Now suddenly he needed that paper. [x]
He seemed so embarrassed to be doing it. (That’s what it looked like to me anyway. He might just have been annoyed at Bela barking orders at him though.)
