Ouch! Segway Takes Out Usain Bolt

He may be the world's fastest man, but Jamaican runner Usain Bolt is apparently no match for a Segway.

Usain Bolt earned his latest gold medal after beating American runner Justin Gatlin in the 200 meters at the world track and field championships. But before he can continue his victory lap, Bolt gets taken down by a cameraman riding a Segway scooter.

The video shows Bolt waving at his supporters and beating his chest with the camerman right behind him. Shortly after, the camerman man loses control of his Segway and veers right into Bolt, flipping the champion runner over as he lands backwards on the ground. The bizarre accident didn't seem to bother the athlete much as he pulls himself up with a simple back somersault, and continues walking.

"He took me out," Bolt later told the New York Times. "The rumor I'm trying to start right now is that Justin Gatlin paid him off."
