Strictly from a photographic standpoint, I had two interesting optical illusions. First, was this shot during the long jump. What is it that's not exactly water and not exactly sand? Quicksand! I promise this is not a photoshop...
And next, this shot during the Women's High Hurdle. Just a nice walk in the park holding hands...
Funny stuff. But on to more serious endeavors. Friday, the light was absolutely perfect for the high jump. I complimented Bob Thomas, the FSU Track SID for his placement of the pit facing the setting sun. Here's James Harris of FSU jumping for the win.
And just like last year when Olympian Christian Taylor jumped in the Long jump, this years event had a special draw... Ngonidzashe Makusha of Zimbabwe, one of only four athletes in history to win both the 100M and Long Jump in the NCAA Championships. Pretty Impressive!
Not sure who this fellow is (send me a note if you know), but he sure could run. I wish I had an upper body like that!
