Usain Bolt crushed Justin Gatlin, 19.55 to 19.74, to win the 200 and cement his status as the king of track and field at the 2015 World Track and Field Championships in Beijing, China.

Bolt met his match on the victory lap as he was run over from behind by a cameraman on a Segway (video below). It could have been really bad, but Bolt got up and after an initial limp continued on his victory lap.

After the race, Bolt said it was no big deal and that he’d be fine (video of the post-race press conference with Bolt as well as a more intimate interview with Bolt appear at the bottom of this article).

Up next for Bolt is the 4×100, where Team USA will be favored if it makes the final as the Americans had four men in the 100m final to Jamaica’s two.

Former international 100/long jumper Kareem Street-Thompson, now a coach at the University of Texas,  captured Bolt getting run over by the cameraman on the Segway from a different angle.
