What a finish. This is what the Olympics is all about.
Um no. The photo shows that Miller's waist crosses the line at the same time as Felix's chest first breaks the plane.

Yes, because you can be the "winner" by having your chest on the line, not crossing the finish, and having the rest of the field pass your corpse.
It is obvious from the photo finish that half of the middle of Felix's body crossed the finish line while Miller's middle was still behind the line.
Winner also did well to rotate right shoulder forward, left shoulder (rotated back) would have been a lot closer. Just like cats in mid-air.

Talk about the most useless camera view known to man (over head). Anyway, here's the official finish cam view.
Yeah, I thought Bmart and Eccleston hurling themselves over the line at Olympic trials was excellent drama. So exciting and showed how much they wanted it. But Miller looks like she is falling or her legs are about to go and it's a last-ditch heave. Lucky her body is long.
All I know is that the elegant/graceful Felix was robbed at the line by a clumsy flopping on the floor. Doesn't seem to me that finishes should happen like that.
