Anyone seeing Pros use M4/3 for major sporting events?

Howdy,

Love watching sport (Soccer, AFL, Tennis, Athletics etc) live and on TV, as well as the photographers taking the shots!  The current World Cup in Russia is a good example.

Am seeing lots of Canon and Nikon cameras and lenses everywhere (600mm, 70-200mm, 24-70mm etc).

Struggling to see any Oly (or Sony) though.

I used my Oly 300mm + 40/150 / EM1 mkii to shot a game of amatuer Aussie Rules and the combo worked great.  I get the feeling however, the Pro's getting the big money don't use this gear at all.

Am I wrong, or does anyone know of any big sporting events where Oly gear is being used side by side with the other major brands.

Cheers,

Chumby
