If they can keep up with Usain Bolt, I guess Segways can go kind of fast after all.
While Bolt was taking his latest victory lap in the Bird's Nest stadium with a Jamaican flag wrapped around his neck, a cameraman riding a Segway scooter ran over a bolt — of all things — protruding from a trackside camera rail. That caused the scooter to veer abruptly to the right and clip Bolt from behind.
Bolt, taken by surprise, fell backward, landing on the cameraman's legs. He ended up flat on his back before doing a cautious back somersault to return to his bare feet.
