My photos from the second weekend, you can click to enlarge:
Canadian Diane Roy, after winning the Gold Medal in the 800m.
I asked the professional Swedish photographer next to me what was so special about his enormous lens on his camera. He said "It takes very nice photos. Which it should for $20,000". He hooked my camera onto it, and this was the result. This girl was approximately 40 metres away.
Russia's Anna Chicherova, seconds before her Gold Medal leap in the women's high jump.
The emotion of a tight women's 100m hurdle final.
Women's 100m hurdles final.
And, the cute Aussie who won.
The moment Britain's Mo Farah took the lead in the 5000m final.
The U.S.'s 4x400 Gold Medal team. AND, the stupid Daegu mascot that every other photographer seemed to want to kill.
Usain Bolt, crossing the line in the fourth fastest 200m of all time.
After the race, Usain went to shake the hand of a Jamaican in the crowd behind me. To get there he had to climb over us, and me. Yep, he leaned on my shoulder.
Sam Effah, taking the start for Canada in the 4x100 relay. We didn't do great.
The U.S. Women's 4x100 team, World Champions.
Seconds after Usain Bolt and the Jamaican team broke the 4x100m World Record. Check the baton he threw into the air.
Usain Bolt dancing/being really awesome.
Michael Frater, Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake and Nesta Carter.
Usain receiving his Gold Medal for the 200m.
And now listening to his Nation's anthem. He was a complete show, before, during and after the race. Someone special to watch and experience.
After breaking a World Record, the athlete/team receives $100,000. They seem happy enough. This was the only record broken through 9 days of competition - a fitting way to end the championships.
An extremely satisfying end to the most amazing sports experience of my life.
