Just seen Usain Bolt win the 200 meters, he ran over to the crowd and got a pro photographers 1DX and 24-70 started taking pictures of Yohan Blake and the crowd before handing it back.

Just shows who a winner really is.

Guess  the US boys wont see this due to the poor NBC coverage - shame.

Maybe it's me, but that looks like a Nikon (D4?) with a 14-24 in his hands...
Too much gear, too little space.

Fact fail on your part.  Definitely a Nikon with 14-24mm.  And while NBC's coverage has been less than stellar, they have covered almost every running event at the Olympics (including qualifying and semifinals included).  Don't jump on the bandwagon and pretend you know what NBC's coverage is like in the US.  I think Bolt is a celebrity in the US, even though he doesn't run in red, white and blue.

That's why you always have a 2nd body with you, so when a crazy athlete takes yours you can shoot him with your camera taking photos of you :)

I smell a big endorsement coming!  Expect canon prices to go up to pay for it.

I recon it would be great to do a planned shoot with usain bolt I know he's a little shy but with the right direction I think he might come out of his shell
