    do we?

    Afaik athletes in a close race throw their arms back and 'dip at the line' to try and get part of their torso sticking out further forward on the finish cameras - it's first bit of the torso crossing the line that counts (if hands counted I guess they'd be sticking their hands out in front of them)

    don't know if that's what you're thinking about
