I could have beaten him if only if I had drank an energy drink this morning. Oh, well better to place in the top three than the last three.

IIRC, that petition was reviewed and ultimately over-ruled.

Was this aimed at me about my ".01 seconds of epic failure?"

If it was then read the rest of my post before jumping to conclusions.

I thought of another one.

why in the world would you think that? he didn't quote you and there are 3 posts between yours and his...

he included that only to express the fact that his post was too short and he had to add more text to the post for it to be acceptable.

Oh, I got confused lol. I thought he was trying to quote someone and since mine was the only one that was like PWNED I thought it was me, lol. I did not know it was the A.net gods telling him that he post was too short. lol.

Quoting JoKeR (Reply 21):

The normal cameras only have 24 frames per second, and since Michael Phelps won by 0.01 second, it is possible that you could not see it on a normal television screen because the normal cameras could not capture it. From my understanding, the staff members have a camera that is capable of having enough frames per second to 1 frame per 0.01 second, and I believe they have reviewed the tape.

I think Cavic may have touched the wall first, but clearly Phelps triggered the pad sooner, or the result wouldn't have been official, since it's a COMPUTER that runs the sensors. I think that Phelps triggered it sooner because Cavic was gliding, and Phelps slammed the touchpad at full-strength as he arrived.

You know, Cavic is a great person and a true Olympian! He has earned the respect of others and the honor of his nation. Other athlete's have thrown hissy's over what they were awarded but Cavic stood tall in his history making finish.

Congratulations to him and to Serbia!
