The price of fame

Below is a picture of Maria Mutola of Mozambique, arguably the greatest female 800m runner of all time, seconds after winning the 800m race at the 2007 Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, Oregon.

After a few minutes of catching her breath, she tries to get up with a bouquet in her hand, to run a lap of honor. Count the number of photographers surrounding her.

I love these shots... Especially the second one.. With that guy on the extreme left in an impossible contortion :))

You can see the progression of his contortion going from the first pic to the second one.
