Watch Usain Bolt Get Hit by a Cameraman on a Segway
Usain Bolt recently competed in the 15th Track and Field World Championships in Beijing, China and put on quite a show. He won his 4th 200m World Championship title at 19.55. 2005 champion Justin Gatlin has been the fastest racer this year, but Bolt had no problem besting him in this race. Bolt's luck ran out moments later when a cameraman on a Segway hit him on the track. Bolt was walking the track, in his bare feet, waving to the crowd as they excitedly cheered their new champion. There were photographers and cameramen everywhere, all trying to snap the perfect shot. One camerman on a Segway wasn't paying quite enough attention to his surroundings and as he came up behind Bolt, managed to knock the man clean off his feet.

The camerman got too close to the rail camera and when one wheel went over the edge of the rail, it sent him and his Segway straight at Bolt. The cameraman and Bolt both end up on the ground, but Bolt bounced right back up with a smile on his face. He did appear to injure his calf a bit, but was otherwise okay.

Minutes later, Bolt was shown footage of the incident during a brief interview and his reaction is fantastic. Rather than being angry, he shrugs is off as something that just happens and even laughs at himself. Luckily, he wasn't hurt.
