Remember this? After the amazing 200 meter final in London in 2012, Jamaican phenom Usain Bolt, playing around in a relaxed fashion as he often does, grabbed a trackside photographer's camera and start shooting picture of teammate and second-place finisher Yohan Blake.
Here it is on YouTube. I've picked up the action at 7:20 to put you in context...the TV feed returns from commercial at 9:00 to find the camera already in Usain's hands.
And you know, his form is darn good, too. Man knows how to handle a Nikon.
Does anyone know who the photographer was? The owner of the camera I mean? He's shown briefly at the end. Too bad the guy probably couldn't use the pictures Usain took...after all, the camera owner doesn't own the rights to the pictures, the person who took the pictures does. But he has a nice souvenir at home, I'll bet.
