Mens 400 metres

By phil_j  
An athlete explodes away from the starting blocks during a heat of the mens 400 metres for athletes with upper limb disabilities at the Paralympic games.

I've had a day off from my Gamesmaker duties today, back home and to the Paid job today, but up at the Stadium again Satyrday morning for a 6am start for my last shift.
Will be sad when its all over, its been a terrific experience.

Very well caught, nice and sharp, bit of a pity that the box is at the back of the athletes head though

Nicely timed shot Phil..........having been there I know how hard it is -(if not impossible!)-to get a clean background, certainly from the seating areas.

Watching it on television the atmosphere seems to be building up day by day.....absolutely superb!
