Yes, he looked like he was standing peeing on the track holding the long lensed camera like his dingdong.
Sadly, of course this happens during a distance event. Of course.
What a maroon.
How is this really World Athletics or USATF's fault?
Sometimes people do things and even an official yelling at the person will not do anything.
Heard that he was told to go out there so people would stop talking about Devon Allen and the false start
Dude, the guys were jogging it. 2:58 @ 1K. No biggie
I had similar happen to me once. I was racing a 400m for fun and was in lane eight. As I came into the home straight I saw that someone was in lane eight warming up and they had headphones on. By that point I was so beyond it, I was completely rigging as had gone off way too fast. I remember deciding oh well... and thinking I'd just plough into them. The starter and finish line officials were screaming and shouting. Anyway someone dragged him out of the lane at the last minute and there was no collision.
In the steeple they were lucky no one collided with the camera man or fell. It could've influenced the outcome of the event badly.
He should've started jogging with them
WA and TV decreed no minimal # marshals on the track, way below what we see at OT.
Too bad the likes of the Italian woman 1500 meter runner, Gaia Sabbatini, wasn't in the race. She would have made quick work of that camera man.
You know what I'm talkin' about.
of course he was covering women’s long jump. Guy was definitely distracted by sand covered glutes
He's like one of those ignorant people whove been told they're special by their dad and walk the track in lane one for an hour while a large competitive running group also does a workout on the track.
He was just getting "up close and personal".
