Strobe Lighting Controversy; Crocker DQ at U.S. Nationals Exposed

PHOENIX, Arizona, October 12. PREMIUM members can see an exclusive video presentation relating to the disqualification of Ian Crocker in the men's 100 fly at U.S. Nationals.

SwimmingWorld.TV investigates the usage of strobe lights by photographers at the event. Crocker stated after his disqualification that he flinched on the block as a result of a strobe light misfiring. This occurrence raised questions about inexperienced photographers being allowed to use such devices during competition and the need for video replay.

This exclusive video embedded in the October issue of Swimming World Magazine contains an interview with Peter Bick, Swimming World Magazine's veteran swimming photographer who has covered numerous major events.

During the video, Bick took SwimmingWorld.TV on a tour to the upper catwalk of the Indiana University Natatorium at IUPUI to show us how strobes are used, placed and secured over competition pools.
