Sports photographers, like most photojournalists, are always striving to get the story into the picture. Few succeed like AFP photographer Olivier Morin did when he lucked out and got a lightning bolt behind Usain Bolt of Jamaica, just after the human Bolt regained his title in the 100 meters at the IAAF World Championships in Moscow, Russia yesterday.
Kind of like photographing Tiger Woods at a key moment in a tournament just as a tiger happens to walk by in the background.
Olivier blogs about his sure-to-be-famous shot, which he took with a trackside remote unit, here.
