Coming in dead last in a swim race, i.e you finish so much later than everyone else, it's embarrassing. the people who are clapping are just glad you managed to finish so the meet can continue. while they clap for you, you must drag your ass out of the water (if you can) or someone else will haul you out. This typically occurs during the 500 free.
