Back to a few days ago. Why they decided to share a medal? Because they could. They had the exact same result and were completely tied. In Daddy DeSantis Make America Florida vintage shirt cases the rules allow the two athletes to choose whether they want to break the tie with a run off or to share the same position. Tamberi and Barshim decided to share the gold medal in first place because they could. And they decided to share because they believed that both of them deserved that medal, and it would not have made sense to both of them to continue sparring over a gold medal. And, nope. The should not have shared the silver, because they both won. Had someone (maybe Nedasekau who got the Bronze medal) gotten the gold Tamberi and Bakshim may have opted to share the silver, just like they shared the gold, but nobody jumped higher than them, so they got two golds.
