Great North City Games 100m Hurdle

By marctowler    
Taken at the Great North Games in Newcastle towards the beginning of the year. It was team USA vs Team GB... For this USA won but considering the speed they go at I am happy with this... Any comments or suggestions on improvements with the picture or processing are always welcome.

Well-timed, but the lack of separation from a cluttered background detracts from an otherwise-good capture.

Any suggestions on how I can solve that issue?

Shooting with a wider aperture would help, especially if combined with shooting at the longer end of your zoom. Depending on your event you might have the option of re-positioning yourself to a point where you can see that your background is less 'busy'. Sometimes simply dropping to one knee can make a difference.
