FinishLynx® high-speed cameras utilized by Powerhouse Timing

noun - FinishLynx® high-speed cameras are used at the finish structure at international open water swimming competitions in order to help the officials judge the proper finish of the athletes - who often come in large packs barreling to the finish.

FinishLynx® is the world's most popular and versatile digital photo finish and timing system.

The system, utilized by Powerhouse Timing at the USA Swimming National Open Water Swimming Championships, the 2010 FINA World Open Water Swimming Championships and Traversee Internationale du Lac St-Jean, accurately and visually captures the athletes frame-by-frame - an extremely important function because several athletes often come sprinting across the finish nearly at the same time at the championships.
