i saw this image recently captured

i was looking at his calm face...and proud he won the race running at over 10meters a second!!!

thinking i had my fill from this wonderous image of an elite athelete....i glanced at the top of the image and noticed what this image was in fact all about

the gods love this man... lol....

the image should simply be labelled...


Michael Johnson said it all: Usain Bolt is so famous that you can become famous just by taking a photograph of him.

That is exactly what has happened to AFP photographer Olivier Morin, whose stunning image of Usain Bolt after his victory in the men's 100m final in Moscow made almost as many headlines as the race it illustrated.

i wanted to share it on ATS... only forum i could find is this one... i think it qualifies as paranormal

One of my favorite quotes of all time is:

"Whenever I open the newspaper, I immediately turn to the sports section. While the other sections of the paper discuss human failure, the sports section announces human triumph."

This photograph epitomizes that statement; both in the marvel that is Usain Bolt and the photographer who took this amazing photo.

the race is only 9 seconds long... what are the odds of capturing all that magic

Could be that the picture was taken after the finish. Sprinters often do a slow down stride around the bend. He doesn't seem to be in full sprint in this photo. Also the photogs in the background are trying to keep up. No way they even attempt this if the runners were in an all out sprint. Very cool photo!
