The Original Gem
Usain Bolt flashes a bright smile as he speeds into the winning spot! This is the golden photo captured by Cameron Spencer that’s taking the world by storm.
"This photo of Usain Bolt @usainbolt was taken during the 100m semi-final. I had time to "play" around on a slow shutter, so I decided to set it at 1/50th of a second. Usually these type of pans work only in one direction and I was surprised it came out this way. As he started to smile and look left and right I actually thought I would not have a chance to get a picture like this – so it was a bit of luck also. It's nice to take a snap which tells a story, shows emotions and was a technical challenge." – Kai Pfaffenbach @kai_pfaffenbach #reutersbehindthelens #usainbolt #winning #smile #rio2016 #olympics
Faster than Flash
When Flash joined the Justice League as the fastest man in the world, he clearly did not hear about Bolt. Time to give away your costume, Flash. Looks like Usain is in first place!
