Usain Bolt Wins Race, Get Knocked Over By Cameraman On Segway (Video)

Usain Bolt won a 200-meter sprint in Beijing, China, on Aug. 27, but was later knocked over by a cameraman who lost his balance while riding a Segway (videos below).

In the race at the World Athletics Championships, the Jamaican runner defeated American Justin Gatlin with a time of 19.55 seconds, notes NPR.

Bolt also defeated Gatlin in the 100-meter race on Aug. 23 by 0.01 second.

After the Segway incident, Bolt stated, "He took me out. The rumor I’m trying to start right now is that Justin Gatlin paid him off,” reports The New York Times.

Gatlin responded: “I want my money back. He didn’t complete the job.”
