Omega sponsors Phelps and it also clocks the swimmers in Olympics. What the f..k?!

One must wonder whether this kind of obvious conflict of interest should be allowed in the first place. In 100m race butterfly Omega gave the win to Phelps, although it seems that Milorad Cavic touched the pad first.

Official timekeeper Omega released a digital photo sequence of last week’s riveting 100-meter butterfly finish at the Olympics—and it’s still not clear to the naked eye just who won.

FINA executive director Cornel Marculescu had been pressing Omega, one of Phelps’ sponsors, to release the images for several days.
