Howard Lao's photo of the day--August 12th...

LONDON—Throughout the IAAF World Track & Field Championships, former University of Washington hurdler and current photographer Howard Lao will be contributing photos and offering his thoughts on the competition.

Here’s his take and a salute to the most recognizable track and field athlete of today, Jamaica’s Usain Bolt as he ran the anchor leg for his country’s 4 x 100 meter relay team that did not finish when he pulled up:

I shot this in the morning (back lit the shot / 400mm Canon lens) and created this image of Bolt taking off during his leg of the 4x1. Sadly this was his actual final race as later in the day he pulled up before the finish line and DNF (did not finish).

Here's to you Usain, you are legendary!
