  1. Forgot one ?

    If it's any consolation, for 5 seconds I thought that was the answer. But then I thought "that's not a puzzle." Then I had it.

  4. check digit problem

    @DejMar, that's not the result I get, but I also wonder  
  15. Olympic paradox

    @JJLeDJ, nice approach. In those cases, an individual could receive both a silver and a bronze medal. But it doesn't quite fit the terms of the OP for the reason that it would be the team that won one of the medals, and it technically would not have been a single event. Welcome to the Den!
