They do chase starts at YMCA Nationals due to the numbers....

start at both ends of the pool, alternating heats. So when you touch, you usually got 10-15 seconds to get the heck out of the pool. They have 'helpers' to pull out the dead-tired kids after a 400 IM or a 200 fly....and last-resort is to dunk them down so the incoming swimmer can turn on the wall.
