Omani Cameran’s Effortless Back-Heel Could Blaze New Path to Professional Soccer (Video)

A cameraman has become an internet sensation and inspiration to his colleagues everywhere.

The camera operator was working in Oman when he pulled off an audacious and effortless piece of soccer skill during a recent game. Thankfully, other camera operators were there to capture the moment.

We don’t have much information about what happened. In fact, all we know is that the game took place in Oman. But that’s not important.

What’s important is the skill. The ball was well out of bounds and headed toward the camera operator when he turned on the style. He used his heel to flick the ball out of the air straight to the player who was going to take the throw-in. The best part is that he didn’t take his hands off the camera any point.

Does watching or spending a significant amount of time around sports make one a better player? Let’s all hope it does. And while we’re at it, we should enroll in the nearest film school too.
