Videos: Usain Bolt gets taken out by guy on Segway during victory lap

Usain Bolt is one of the greatest Olympic sprinters of all time. He has been known as the fastest man in the world for the better half of a decade and he continues to break records.

Today, he is lucky that he didn’t break his ankle after his most recent race in Beijing.

Following his win in the race, Bolt took the customary victory lap. The company broadcasting the event wanted to have an angle of Bolt running around the track, so a cameraman on a Segway followed him. After the lap, the cameraman lost his balance and took out Bolt.

Videos of the incident surfaced all over social media. It could have been very serious, but as long as Bolt is fine, I feel safe enough to laugh.

Maybe next time they will get somebody who actually knows how to ride a Segway. Step your game up, Beijing.
