Usain Bolt Wins 200m, Then Gets Taken out by a Segway

The Jamaican sprinting legend wins the sprint double at the Beijing 2015 World Championships and then gets creamed.

Usain Bolt

The world’s fastest man and Olympic sprinter, Usain Bolt, was fresh off of a blistering performance in the Olympic 200m sprint, capturing gold by a hair over American Justin Gatlin, only to have his celebration cut short by a cameraman on a segway in Bejing, China.

Here is the unfortunate incident with the camera man. “They tried to kill me,” Bolt told BBC news (via Mirror.uk) in a sarcastic response following the fall:

Here is the collision from another angle.

The Jamaican was up just moments later and it appears no injuries were sustained. Bolt claimed his fourth consecutive world 200m title by posting a 19.55sec time as he won his 11th world championship. He also toasted Gatlin in the 100m sprint earlier in the week on Sunday. The 33-year-old Puma athlete won’t be out of action for long as he goes head-to-head with the American once again this Saturday night in the 4x100m relay.
