Usain Bolt still can’t be slowed on the track. Once he’s off it, though, that’s a different story.
The Jamaican sprinter and Olympic gold medalist continued his worldwide dominance Thursday at the 2015 world championships in Beijing, easily blowing by Justin Gatlin to win the 200-meter final in 19.55 seconds.
Bolt coasted across the finish line to capture his second gold of the worlds after he won the 100 meter final Sunday, too.
Bolt still has a 4×100 relay to run, and hopefully he’ll be able to compete in that race. We say that because of a scary but hilarious incident that occured after Thursday’s win. As Bolt was celebrating with fans on the outside of the track, a cameraman on a Segway scooter got a little too close for comfort, and disaster struck.
And another look.
Finally, a third angle, which actually makes you feel really bad for the camera guy. Look at that camera fall on his freaking head.
The whole incident makes this photo — taken Sunday after Bolt’s 100 meter win — especially hilarious.
Bolt looked to be OK, which obviously is a good thing, and he appeared to smile after the whole incident, so apparently there are no hard feelings.
