Astounding.

Thanks for the steer Colin. Right place, right time. The highs and the lows, the agony and the ecstasy.

You see all the cameramen there and wonder what sort of images they are capturing, and then you see the results. Not just pure record photography but in amongst it all an artistic interpretation of the event and the action. It also demonstrates that a high FPS is a godsend.

Mind you given the opportunity even Usain Bolt can knock out an image or two!
