Howard Lao's photo of the day--August 11th...

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 is his take on last night’s historic women’s 3000 meter steeplechase race, won in an American record 9:02.58 by Colorado grad Emma Coburn, with Bowerman TC’s Courtney Freirichs taking second, also under the former American record, running 9:03.77.

I had some success in the morning session by going up high with my 400mm lens which I decided to try again for the evening session. I narrowed my shooting locations down and decided that a head on location of the steeplechase would make for the cleanest shot. It paid off! This was the last water jump showing the two Americans that went 1-2! A very historical night for track and field indeed!
