How do the Olympics make the flag images appear in the swimming pool

It's done just like with Football games. The technology we have today is awesome, huh?

It is video overlapping. It was used for the Sydney games as well.

Im Pretty sure that it is projected because if you sort of look closely when the divers dive in you can see the light go on there back!

Also, they have very high technology that is set so that when the pad gets hit the projecter turns on but only for the first person that hits the touchpad!

It is computer generated.

Will you get fitter swimming or jogging?

Swimming is a more well-rounded work out. Swimmers get into better all around shape, while runners exercise mostly their legs. Both will reduce your percent body fat, and increase your lung capacity (mostly swimming though) and your endurance (depending on if it's cross country or not.) I would pick swimming, though, it's more fun. :)
