Wasn't therre a little controversy about the measurement aspects of Phelp's win? I think the cameras shows that the competitor could have touched the end of the lane first.  But there is a switch that has to be lightly depressed from the swimmer's momentum when they touch it, and the competitor was stretched out trying to touch the wall first, and slowing down. Phelps gave the wall a strong jab, and won.

Remember when Michael Phelps won a gold medal in swimming by 10 msec (0.01 sec)? That wouldn't have been possible without high-speed cameras. Measuring 10 msec is easy. We can measure picoseconds.
