Why is swimming timed by milleseconds?

Several races have come down to one one-hundredth of a second to determine gold and sliver.Three races in the previous two Olympics have come down to one one-hundredth of a second. They are:Men's 50 meter freestyle at the 2004 Olympic gamesWomen's 50 meter freestyle at the 2008 Olympic gamesMen's 100 meter butterfly at the 2008 Olympic gamesAll of those events are sprint events meaning the pace is very fast and there is almost no room to "pull away". That results in very close finishes in which any of 8 competitors has a shot at the gold.If swimming was timed at any other margin, there would be alot of room for multiple winners. Also, that is not precises and that could be a huge problem.
