Swimming Picture of the Week – August 26, 2008

Since everyone has been talking about "THE FINISH," there has even been talk about Michael finishing one handed.

Here’s the deal as I see it.  No person since the beginning of time has finished with both hands exactly at the same time.  It’s only now, since the invention of hi-res, hi-speed cameras, that we’ve been able to actually SEE this.

Here’s a continuation of a past Pic of the Week.   What caught my eye is that this swimmer (who has NEVER been disqualified for a non-simultaneous touch) had a non-simultaneous touch while sprinting to the wall.

Tell us your thoughts on… "THE FINISH," this picture, or the human inability to actually finish with both hands at EXACTLY the same time.

Legal or DQ?
