In this July 19, 1976, file photo, East German swimmer Kornelia Ender, right, who was awarded the Olympic gold medal for the 200 meter freestyle event, stands on the podium, as her main opponent, silver medalist Shirley Babashoff of the U.S. acknowledges the crowd during the medal ceremony in Montreal, Canada. Babashoff has a bunch of silver medals. They should be gold. The International Olympic Committee should have fixed this travesty years ago but inexplicably continues to drag its feet.
