DID MICHAEL PHELPS REALLY WIN THAT 7TH GOLD MEDAL AT THE 2008 BEIJING OLYMPICS
OR
WAS THIS A CONSPIRACY OF OLYMPIC PROPORTIONS?

BECAUSE A FUNNY THING HAPPENED IN THE WATER CUBE.

Background:
Notice: for the sake of pedantic clarity 001ofasecond.com has moved to 100thofasecond.com. Please adjust your habits and links accordingly.

On August 15th a corporately-owned athlete by the name of Michael Phelps participated in a 100-meter Butterfly finals race at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He was heavy favorite to win this race, despite losing the same race in qualifying session against someone who is, in an ignorant world we live in today, commonly refered to as "some guy", but who in the world of competitive swimming is actually the "big fish" by the name of Milorad Cavic. The world's media attention turned toward Phelps expecting him to tie Mark Spitz' 36-year-old record. But, as it turned out, Michael Phelps did not start this race as expected. At the 50-meter mark he was only 7th out of 8th participants. Milorad Cavic led the race from start to finish, including at the 50-meter mark. Toward the end of the race, it appeared that Phelps closed on Cavic's lead, but still could not manage to beat him. The eyes of all the spectators in the aquatic center in Beijing, as well as those millions around the world, clearly saw that Milorad Cavic has won the race. Televised replays from all the different angles, including the one from underwater cameras, clearly showed that Cavic was the fist one to touch the wall. Television replays also showed Michael Phelps' coach Bob Bowman disappointedly muttering: "He's got him." (meaning that Cavic beat Phelps). Phelps' own mother sitting in the audience in all her confusion raised two fingers in the air as if accepting that her son came in second. Even Phelps himself, in the fist couple of seconds after the finish, appeared to be subdued knowing/believing that he lost the race. But, something happened there, and the official timekeeper of the event OMEGA showed that Phelps supposedly won by 0.01 of a second. That is 100th part of one second, and the lowest margin of difference allowed in the official swimming contests.

100TH OF A SECOND?

Yes, the underwater sensors of the official timekeeper of the event, the watchmaker Omega, have determined that Michael Phelps, has won this race by 0.01 of a second.

0.01 OF A SECOND?

Was this an ad for a watchmaker or what?
But the devil is indeed in the detail.
How is it that the official timekeeper of the event is the same company that sponsors Phelps since 2004? Isn't there a clear conflict of interest here? You know how deligthtfully messed up that is?? That's like having Tim Donaghy officiating in NBA games, and also placing bets on them. And why are leading FINA officials unashamedly and brazenly the biggest cheerleaders of Michael Phelps? We are not talking about NBC and other American-broadcasters who have clear interest in weaving the mythical narrative in their sickening quest for the largest share of ratings, and for purposes of appeasing (read: licking asses of) their advertisers (and therefore for their economical ends) who buy such ridiculously overpriced ad slots. We are not talking about millions of average American fans who are being assaulted by some of the biggest sport-related media hype in history (Hi Bob!). We are not talking about millions of biased American fans that only care that Phelps is an American who "kicks ass". We are not talking about millions of white Americans who rejoice and cherish the success and worldwide fame of an all-white athlete in a sport where speed, stamina and physical contributions are of outmost importance. Instead, we are talking about the officials of FINA, the supposedly neutral governing and regulating body of this sport. Think of the possibilities of inbreeding my friends. Considering that Milorad Cavic did beat Phelps head-to-head in qualifying session, and since Milorad Cavic posted better time than Phelps and everbody else in the semifinals, FINA & OMEGA had plenty of time to make sure that Phelps wins the final session, even if it had to be by the narrowest of allowed margins. Shame on you FINA! Shame on you OMEGA! Shame on you IOC for allowing this charade to unfold in front of our very own eyes!

Finally, we can't help but to spotlight the emotional immaturity of the man himself. After the race Michael Phelps commented how he found an extra motivation before the race in the Cavic's statements that it would be good for the sport of swimming if Phelps lost. Whaaaat? This implies that Phelps thinks that nobody should say anything? That nobody should have their own right to exist and win? That the competitors should say nothing and instead should simply bow in front of his hyped-up "majesty"? Sadly, like every other red-white-and-blue delusional outthere that believes everything he reads -- Michael Phelps, too -- exhibits symptoms of that infamous and stereotypical "ugly American" condition.

And if you think this is just about one race in some stupid sport that nobody cares about, think again.
This is the end my friend. Dumbing down of America before the marketing and media and political gods is long complete. Knowingly or not we are in it just for the sake of chasing our own tails. Eating our own young. We are part of the societal and global loop structure that is larger than the capability of our individual comprehension of the matters that concern us and our well-beings. We are pre-wired, pre-programmed, and our basic emotions and life experiences are pre-determined. We are intellectual cyborgs that have inbred and self-mutated. Worst of all -- we come with no expiration date.

So rejoice away my friends, and look forward to another manufactured spectacle brought to you by the masters of the global loop whose unwitting part you are. No amount of Bob Costas-induced stupor will change that.

But until that time, WE DEMAND that FINA and IOC cease with the downright wrong practice of allowing athletes' sponsors, in individual sports, to also be the timekeepers of the events where those athletes appear. Not only is the potential abuse always present, but the whole thing is completely in contravention of the original aim of the Olympic games; which was a celebration of human spirit via achievements of the human body; as opposed to today's Olympic spirit which is nothing but a celebration of corporate greed and commercial excess by way of contemporary drugged-up gladiators in their pursuit of hefty endorsements and 5 minutes of fame.

And, finally, WE also DEMAND that somebody in the U.S. organizes a swimmimg event which would feature another race just between Michael Phelps and Milorad Cavic. But with a catch. That Phelps and Cavic be strictly forbidden for being personally paid for this event. Instead, their share of the proceeds should go to the charities of their choice. This race between the two swimmers would not only be a commercial success for its organizers and pay-per-view broadcasters (and it's all about $ isn't it,) but will also, perhaps, clear some doubt that was obviously raised in connection with the way how Phelps obtained his 7th gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Most importantly, by donating their fees from this event to the charities of their choice these athletes would contribute to the greater cause, which is probably something that is lacking from their me-me-me agenda at the moment.

I don't think there is any question who was faster through the water. Of course the race is 100 meters, not 99.9, and finishing counts.

Sometimes people just have fate on their side.

I didn't think it was a conspiracy at first, but your gratuitous use of CAPS swayed me.

Damn the man.

Phelps and Cavic both had the identical results in the prelims and semis of the 100 fly. The prelims and semis were both pass-fails tests, and both of them passed onto the next round.

Have you ever been in a swimming race decided by .01 seconds? Ive won one race by .03 seconds and lost another by .01 seconds. I could not tell either time if I had won or lost. In the race I won by .03 seconds, my shoulder was in back of the guy that I beat at the finish, but I won the race because my arms were longer and I know how to touch the wall.

After the Serbian team filed its protest, they were allowed to look at all the timing results and photos and they are satisfied that Phelps won. So, why are you so worked up about this?

Never Stop... thank you for giving me a good chuckle today. I like how they planned it to be so close that they were able to put their plan into effect that Phelps would be guaranteed the victory. Ha ha!

Wow. Last week I took a cruise underneath the Golden Gate Bridge and through the Bay. I would have thought twice about taking the cruise if I knew the sharks were that aggressive. Shit.

I was doing a little research... man its a scary world out there..

Dinosauroid-like Alien Reptiles are dominating the World

Christine Fitzgerald, a confidante of Diana, Princess of Wales, claims that Diana told her that the Royal Family were Reptilian aliens, and that they could shapeshift.

David Icke's --BBC reporter-- claims that humanity is actually under the control of dinosauroid-like alien reptiles who must consume human blood to maintain their human appearance.

"Evidence" goes from Sumerian tablets describing the "Anunnaki" (which he translates as "those who from heaven to earth came"), to the serpent in the Biblical Garden of Eden, to child abuse, fluoridation, and the genealogical connections between the Bush family and the House of Windsor.

Icke theorizes that the reptilians came here from the constellation Draco.

That can only mean one thing - they got to the Serbians too and forced them into silence!!! Who knows how high up the halls of power this conspiracy reaches...

I didnt beat Phelps, but perhaps Im the only guy at this competition who had a shot at beating Phelps one-on-one, Cavic said. People will be asking me about this for years.

"I almost won the gold, and if you ask me, the clock does not lie, Cavic wrote.

If you ask me, it should be accepted and we should move on, he wrote. Ive accepted defeat, and theres nothing wrong with losing to the greatest swimmer there has ever been.
