Frankly I am amazed Henri Cartier Bresson managed to take any situational photographs at all.

Expectations and standards were very different then.

This is a key point that is also overlooked when people ask the question "What did sports photographers do before AF?" The Answer of course is that the expectations for the number of good shots and the quality of the shots you did get was much lower than it is today. I highly doubt you could be competitive as a sports shooter using anything with much less AF capability than a D4/1DX has as a primary camera these days.
