And I cannot believe anyone actually cares for that.
Just for the record, yes, it does look for the human eye that Cavic (sorry, dunno how to type the actual letters needed) had won, but in reality he didn't get to touch the wall. That's why there's a pressure sensor there. Then he began swimming a little more, and, in the meanwhile, Felps extended his arms and touched it, therefore he won. Had Cavic had longer fingers, yes, he might have won, but thing is, he doesn't. Thus he didn't win, despite the look of it.

I think both athletes should be awarded with Gold. To close to call

We need at video footage at 100 FPS, so we can be fair. We are missing 70 frames on online videos.


Maybe one of these would help!!

is it possible that cavic didn`t touch it with enough power in the first moments and so the sensors were late?

btw,did you know that americans don`t have to take doping tests?why?

"WADA has received criticism from the National Football League Players Association executive director Gene Upshaw. When asked if the NFL will use WADA tests on NFL players, he stated "I have no confidence in WADA or their kits. I have my doubts about WADA and their history. I am not willing to accept them as an authority on this."[5] The NFL currently only uses urine tests, which does not detect HGH. The WADA test detects HGH but reportedly only 23-36 hours after it is injected into the athlete."


Tests made in the United States prior to the games are made by the USADA

"The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which began operations on October 1, 2000, is a non-governmental agency responsible for implementation of the World Anti-Doping Code in the United States. The World Anti-Doping Code, which lists drugs and methods that are prohibited in sports, was developed by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) which was established by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1999. The IOC requires that all Olympic sports adopt the World Anti-Doping Code prior to August 13, 2004.

The USADA is funded by a U.S. federal grant and contracts with the USOC and other organizations. [1]"


During the Olympic games all athletes are tested by the same Agency (WADA)

Phelps is a spokesman for Omega, the official timekeeper of the event.


We need the last 30 frames of the photo finish.

Sports illustrated seems to have skipped the frame above!

Notice how the frame above is missing

Photo Finish
"Although some sports use electronic equipment to track the racers during a race, a photo is considered the most important evidence in selecting the winner. Finish photos are used in nearly all professional human and animal races, except for races in which athletes are divided into lanes that use touch pads, such as competitive swimming. However, they may be examined only when a race is close or when a record has been broken."

Australian Duncan Armstrong, in the 400m freestyle event at the 1986 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh, Scotland.

"Later in the 400 m, Armstrong was once again slow out of the blocks, turning last at the 100 m mark, and still being second last at the 300 m mark. However he stormed home, and in a photo finish, claimed the silver medal behind East Germany’s Uwe Dassler. He had carved more than 5 seconds off his previous personal best. "

The athlete himself Milorad Cavic's writes on his Blog

" Filing a Protest: Yes, as you all saw, I almost won the Gold, and if you ask me, the clock does not lie. I had nothing to do with this filing, and neither did my coach Mike Bottom. This is just another attack on my coach who has done never wronged anyone in swimming, except coach foreign athletes (non-Americans) to Olympic medals. You all have to understand that any coach would have done this for their swimmer if there were any possibility of error, but I’m sorry to disappoint, it was my Olympic committee and swimming staff who did the filing. We’re not “sour grapes” and we’re not “pissed”… If you ask me, it should be accepted and we should move on. I’ve accepted defeat, and there’s nothing wrong with losing to the greatest swimmer there has ever been."

Now, that's fair play! Accepting such a narrow defeat and moving on.
