I got real close up to Usain Bolt during the 4x100m heats on Friday 1st August at Hampden Park. I was the only accredited photographer positioned beside the last relay change point and so got some unique pics.

For the final I was positioned on the first bend after the finish line (along with dozens of photographers), but Usain strode past the waiting press and went straight for the crowd and did a lap of honour that took around 45mins before disappearing up the tunnel on the home straight.
