@all
Thanks!

I am writing "how to" tutorial for this type of shots. It should be ready by the end of the week. I will post a link here.

@iamachair

Thanks!

You are 100% correct. It wasn't easy to get into that position. I was approx 1 meter away from Kristian as he ran on his vault jump.

I wasn't worried about me, but I was worried that me being so close could affect concentration of the gymnast. But, I cleared that with his coach, and I was ready to go.

There were other constraints during the shot. I am writing a blog post covering them all.

@Naga

Thanks!

BTW, amazing gymnast on the photo is Kristian Thomas who has won bronze medal with Great Britain team on London Olympics few days ago.

Unfortunately, he made a mistake at the end of his vault yesterday and that cost him individual gymnastics all-around bronze medal. He finished 7th, but if his vault was on par with the one from couple of days ago, he would be 3rd.

Amazing athlete and amazing person.

@Vipul

Thanks!

This was done while testing new Olympus OM-D E-M5 and its 9fps. It was literary the second day I got it. :-)

I will write a blog post with detailed "how to" in the next couple of days and post a link to it.
