A series of photographs have been released where Usain Bolt steals a camera from a cameraman and takes photos from the perspective of a Olympic superstar who just won gold. The interesting fact about this is that Usain Bolt has commandeered equipment from the same photographer before.

After Usain Bolt won back-to-back gold medals in both the 100 and the 200 meter races (making him the first person to ever do so) he grabbed the camera from photographer Jimmy Wixtröm and took his own pictures. This makes it the third time that Usain Bolt has taken a camera from Jimmy. 

All of Usain’s photos give us a unique glimpse of what it must feel like to be a competing athlete who has thousands and thousands of cameras and eyes on you. Phots include fellow Jamaican Yohan Blake, camera crews and Jimmy Wixtröm outlined in red.
